My thesis was about the ecology and human influence on the community of wintering shorebirds on the coast of northwestern Spain. My next step was taking part in a project about the conservation and reintroduction of the osprey, also in Spain. This contact with raptors led me to cross the ocean and to come to Peru to get involved in a study of the harpy eagle, the most powerful raptor in the world, to monitor its behavior and how the community of monkeys (one of its main prey) behave in its territory. Of course, I fell in love with the jungle and I came at the beginning of 2016 to work as the field assistant of this awesome project, the Wired Amazon. After a few months I was designed as director and now my research interest is focused on different aspects of tropical ecology, as well as coordinate the correct functioning of the three different projects that form the Wired Amazon
