Current participation in the following Projects:

 Project UE Marie Skodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) (Models and SUport tools for integrated FOrest policy development under global change and associated Risk and UNcertainty, SuFoRun)

In the past, I have participated in the following international activities

♦ COST Action Forest Management Decision Support Systems (FORSYS)

♦ Marie Curie Program ForEAdapt (Knowledge exchange between Europe and America on forest growth models and optimization for adaptive forestry)

♦ Sudoe Interreg Project Micosylva

♦ UE project Arange (Advanced multifunctional forest management in European mountain ranges)

I have coordinated diverse forest valuation projects (Spanish Environment Ministry, Andalusia Autonomous Government,…)
