Líneas de investigación

Ecology, epidemiology and control of wildlife diseases, specially focusing at the wildlife-livestock interface.

Currently I'm focused on the TB problem in extensive Mediterranean systems (e.g. Doñana National Park, Cabañeros National Park, Game estates), addressing from a multidisciplinary point of view the interactions between wild ungulates and extensive livestock (pathology, molecular biology, environmental microbiology, farm husbandry, animal behaviour, remote telemetry, GIS, contact recording).  

Main model hosts and pathogens

    • Hosts: Eurasian wild boar, red deer, livestock, cattle.
    • Pathogens: Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex.
