This blog intends to be an open portal for sharing and discussing science and governance issues in my research interests: Multi-scale connections between water governance, socioeconomic and ecohydrological processes; modeling of complex social-ecological systems; land-water-energy-food nexus; inter and trans-disciplinary practices in sustainability research; citizen science; open data and ICT’s for natural resources management. Researchers read loads of papers and books, and many of ideas arise along the way that we don’t have time to develop. Sharing them on the net is a form of OpenScience, freeing ideas to anyone interested in taking them forward. I write in English and Spanish.

Environmental Scientist, Msc. Applied Ecology (Halmstad University, Sweden) and Msc. Integrated Watershed Management (University of Granada, Spain). My first research experience took place at the International Center for Ecological Engineering – University of Kalyany (India) and focused on modeling water quality and design of constructed wetlands for wastewater reclamation. I worked as Europen FP7-projects manager in Bioazul S.L. during 2009/2010. In 2011 I got a grant from the Spanish government to develop my PhD at the Human Geography department of the University of Seville. In 2015 I was hired by the Sustainable Water Action-SWAN project to coordinate research on water issues between Europe and the United States. I am a member of the New Water Culture Foundation and the Participation and Sustainability Association. Since February 2013, I am also part of the Executive Board of the Spanish Ecological Economics Association.
