I got a Degree in Veterinary Sciences at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) in 1989 and a PhD at the same University in 1995. Since 2002 I am Associate Professor at UAB. I am lecturing on wildlife diseases as part of the veterinary degree, MSc and PhD programs, where I have mentored 11 PhD students. I have acted as principal researcher in numerous projects, grants and contracts on wildlife diseases and I am coauthor of more than 140 scientific publications. My research interest is conservation medicine, which includes the study of viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic diseases of wildlife.
