Environmental Biologist and MsC in Natural Resources and Wildlife Management, I'm currently the head of the Arctic Campaign team at Greenpeace Spain and have been the Marine Protected Areas programme coordinator of WWF Spain. I have been responsible of the MPA Network Proposal by WWF that pushed the Spanish Government to declare the first MPA offshore area at the Atlantic Sea, named El Cachucho. I had directly collaborated in the drafting of the marine chapters at Law 42/2007 on the Management of Natural Heritage and Biodiversity and had filed numerous complaints to the European Commission on the management of human activities. I had a deep knowledge of the EU Habitats Directive and the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive and Geographic Information System (GIS). Actively working on the reform of the Coastal Law, marked one of the most successful campaigns of Greenpeace. I’m the editor of the reports Destrucción a Toda Costa.

Worked also for the Spanish Cetacean Society on board different research vessels. I had participated as an observer in several international agreements such as OSPAR, Barcelona Convention and General Fisheries Commission of the Mediterranean -FAO. Published hundreds reports, TV shows and several scientific articles.
