Wildlife veterinary medicine, health and wild populations management are ones of my principal interests, and luckily I will end up working on that. I am a veterinarian, nowadays focused on Iberian wildlife, and I am doing my PhD in sarcoptic mange in Iberian ibex from Ports de Tortosa i Beseit, but in some studies I will also include other Iberian populations. The main subject of my PhD is the diagnosis of this parasitosis and the evaluation of the management measures taken over the years to control this disease. I will also study the relationship between environment, vegetation and Iberian ibex feeding habits and I will explore the genetics of the main study population. I also work in wild boar population management and with other autochthonous species management and health.
