Research interests

Alejandro is a determined multidisciplinary researcher who feels passionate for Nature and takes joy in learning. His research interests focus on plant-soil-atmosphere interactions, soil bioengineering, Nature-based Solutions against natural hazards, and the development of simple numerical tools to answer complex environmental questions.  

Alejandro obtained a BSc in Environmental Science with Honours at the University of Salamanca, Spain, in 2006. He then secured an RA position to work in a project looking at the sustainable nutrition of tree crops within the Valencian Institute for Agricultural Research. While working as RA, he obtained a 1st Class, BEng in Agricultrual Engineering in 2010. Alejandro was then granted a scholarship to undertake an Erasmus Mundus MSc in Applied Ecology. Moving between the universities of Poitiers (France), East Anglia (UK), Coimbra (Portugal), and Kiel (Germany), Alejandro became a resourceful researcher. In 2013, he was awarded with a PhD studenship at GCU, where he has been working since on the mitigation of natural hazards, such as landslides or soil pollution, using vegetation. Alejandro completed successfully his docotoral studies within 3 years. He currently holds a Research Fellow position at the BEAM Research Centre, teaches GIS to MSc students, demonstates in Soil Mechanics to BEng students, collaborates in several international research projects, and enjoys reviewing and editing for high-rank scientific journals.
