Associate Professor

Biomass Production and Bioenergy

My main research lines focus on all topics related to biomass production for energy, both from forest management and fast-growing plantations. My interests entail the production and economic aspects, policy framework, environmental effects and social consequences of their development. In addition to this, I have interest on the analysis and modelling of risk, especially combined with ecosystem services, either caused by natural disturbances, man-made origins or social conflicts.

Concerning teaching, I am in charge of advanced courses on bioenergy (“Supply and energy use of lignocellulosic biomass”, and “Bioenergy markets and policies”) and methods (“Academic skills” and “Research methods in forest sciences”). In addition, I am supervisor of several MSc and DSc students. I keep close cooperation at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden), the Norwegian Institute of bioeconomy research (Norway), the Forest Science and Technology Centre of Catalonia (Spain) and the Northwest A&F University (China).
