I’m a postdoctoral researcher with a Juan de la Cierva fellowship in the Soil and Water Conservation Research Group in CEBAS-CSIC (Murcia, Spain). Currently, I focus on the impact of climate change and landuse change on hydrology and soil erosion in Mediterranean environments. In collaboration with FutureWater I have developed a coupled hydrology-soil erosion model (SPHY-MMF), which I have applied in the Segura River catchment. Please visit the pages related to my research output (publications, presentations and projects) and to my outreach activities (blog and videos).

Review IPCC Sixth Assessment Report

Published on: December 18, 2020

The IPCC is currently working on the new Sixth Assessment Report. Like with the five previous assessment reports, this report will be again a landmark publication for climate change research. In this blog post I want to tell about my experience with reviewing a previous IPCC report, for which I even was selected to become a contributing author. About two years ago I found out that Working Group II of the IPCC was working on a new report called Climate Change and Land. The IPCC is divided over…
