He holds a Bachelor degree in Forestry (University of Lleida, 1999) and PhD in Forest Ecology (University of Clermont-Ferrand, France, 2003). After a postdoctoral stay in the University of Québec at Montréal (2004 and 2005), he joined the Forest Sciences Centre of Catalonia (CTFC) with a Juan de la Cierva contract (2006-2008) and later with a Ramon y Cajal contract (2009-2014). Since 2016 he is lecturer at the University of Lleida (UdL) and researcher at CTFC. He is also associate researcher at the Centre for Ecological Research and Forestry Applications (CREAF) (since 2011) and at the Centre for Forest Research in Québec (since 2015).
During the last 10 years he has participated in different research projects funded by some of the main national and international research programs (Spanish National Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation, Eranet Programme, 7th Framework Programme, Interreg Program, LIFE projects, among others), being the principal investigator in some of them. He has also coordinated different contracts with the Catalan forest administration and he has been in the management committee of three COST Actions (E-47, FP1206 and CA15226).
The results of his research have been published in around 80 scientific publications, including more than 50 peer-reviewed articles (SCI), 4 book chapters and a large number of popular articles and scientific communications. He has also participated in the Organization of different scientific events, acting as chairman of the 5th International conference of Mediterranean Pines (Solsona, 2014). He has been member of the editorial board of New Forests (2010-2013) and the Canadian Journal of Forest Research (2011-2016). At present he is associated editor of the European Journal of Forest Research (since 2013).
