How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My professional activities and projects in which I have participated allow me to organize my experience along three main axes: i) water management in contexts of scarcity and climate change; ii) flood-related economic issues; and iii) ecosystems services in protected areas. I also count on experience in model developing and programming, and econometrics (time series analysis). During the last four years I have been focusing on learning agent-based models and their application to the simulation of flood impacts and disruptions on economic systems.

Estimating flood damage, although crucial for assessing flood risk and for designing mitigation policies, continues to face numerous challenges, notably the assessment of indirect damage. It is widely accepted that damage other than direct damage can account for a significant proportion of total damage. Yet due to scarcer data sources and lack of k...
Today, flood risk management practices incorporate non-structural measures that take into account the potential of ecosystems to prevent, regulate and reduce water-related hazards. However, the implementation of non-structural measures, such as floodplains and water retention areas, increases the exposure of rural and farming areas for better prote...

Harming consequences of floods in societal systems are the likely consequence of socioeconomic factors. New practices in flood damage prevention have moved away from the implementation of structural measures, embracing as well non-structural measures that integrate ecosystem services, taking advantage of the ecosystems’ potential to prevent, regula...
This paper aims to discuss the existence of the so-called ”Eighty effect”. This phenomenon refers to the general decline in river flows in the Spanish headwaters until the 1980s. We chose the Tagus River Basin as a case study for several important reasons: it is subject to certain increasing demands as well as environmental objectives; it is under...
We study the impact and synergies beetwen environmental services and economic development in both Madrid's Biosphere Reserves (MaB program).
