My work is focused on the Spanish butterflies and moths study, conservation and divulgation as board member of the butterflies and moths conservation NGO in Spain (ZERYNTHIA association). I am interested in anything related with lepidóptera (biology, distribution, taxonomy, ecology, genetics…). I have published several scientific and informative publications about Spanish butterflies and moths. I also coordinate monitoring programs for butterflies and moths, including the one started in Tenerife in 2017, which is the first long-therm study about butterflies in the Macaronesia. I was born in the Canary Islands, and that has originated in me a link and special interest with their nature in general and with their butterflies in particular
