Agronomist by the Universitat de Lleida (UdL) in Spain (2002), and later PhD (2007) in Applied Chemical Ecology at the same university. During my PhD and early postdoctoral career, I conducted research stays at the Swedish University of Agricultural Science (SLU, Alnarp) and INRA Avignon (France).

From 2007 to 2008, I worked within ENDURE, a transnational European Network of Excellence that aimed for the adoption of long-term sustainable pest management technologies, and cooperation among European research institutes. In 2008, I was awarded a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to continue my research at the University of California at Berkeley. During my stay of three years at Berkeley, I developed most of my research in understanding the performance and behavior of aerosol technologies for mating disruption.

In late 2011, I joined Suterra® in Bend, OR USA, the industry leader in applied chemical ecology for pest control. There, I served as Technical Product Manager and later as Product Development Manager.  In these roles, I have lead the development and adoption of a range of mating disruption products which are key in sustainable pest management strategies around the world today. Currently, I continue to lead product development from Suterra’s European facilities in Valencia, Spain.
