About Me

I was born in Madrid (Spain) but grew up in many different places. I began my career in Biology at Universidad de Navarra (Pamplona,), then moved to CEU (Madrid) and University of Victoria (BC, Canada), where I got my BSc.  This was followed by a Doctorate at the University of Aberdeen, and a post-doc at the University of Glasgow, both in Scotland. I then returned to Spain to coordinate the Atlantic Salmon Restoration Programme in Galicia (CIF Lourizan, Pontevedra) and then in Cantabria (Centro Ictiologico de Arredondo) and spent a short time at ZSL in London. In 2004, I moved to Swansea University (Wales), where I am a Professor in Aquatic BioSciences and Director  of the Centre for Sustainable Aquatic Research (CSAR) at the Department of BioSciences. See my fulCV here.

Research Interests

I work mostly with salmonids as model systems to understand how organisms adapt and respond to change.  I am generally more interested in the 'whys' and 'hows' than in the 'whats', but check out my projects and publications to get an idea of the sort of topics I am interested on (see citations to my work here - ) . And drop me a line if you want to find out more or wish to join my group. I am always interested to hear from potential students and volunteers.
