About me

Originally a software engineer with a degree from the Barcelona Schools of Informatics, I recently finished a MSc (Environmental Science) at the University of Auckland. I also hold a postgraduate diploma in International Cooperation and Development from the Technical University of Catalonia. For more than twelve years I've worked for several companies and non-profits in different countries such as France, Germany, Vietnam, Indonesia, Spain and New Zealand. I currently work for the Department of Conservation as a technical advisor with the Marine Ecosystems Team.

I enjoy applying the knowledge I earned working as a computer scientist for more than years to help solve problems in the environmental and conservation fields. Some of my most relevant skills are:

My favourites languages are R and Python, although I'm happy to use others depending on the circumstances.

My interests are broad; coastal environments, conservation, citizen science and community-led restoration. I'm a fan of iNaturalist.NZ, an online platform to share fauna and flora observations within New Zealand. I currently reside in Auckland's East Coast with my little family after relocating from Wellington, where we first settled in New Zealand in 2014.
