Researcher at the University of Lleida


Research areas:
-Weed Science
-Integrated Weed Management
-Weed emergence modelling
-Oilseed species/crops

My research interests are mainly concerning the biology of weeds; among these, germination, emergence and growth characteristics, in order to develop models that could describe them. This issue is closely related to Integrated Weed Management (IWM) and its improvement, which is the final objective of this research. Secondarily, I also work with oilseed crops (camelina and field pennycress), which are oncoming crops that could be implemented in rotation with dryland cereals for IWM. I also collaborate with research on herbicide resistant weeds.
