I joined BC3 in August 2019, as an Ikerbasque research professor in collective decision-making processes under uncertainty. I have a multidisciplinary education, with doctoral studies in both Ecology and Bioresources Engineering (Oregon State University, USA, 2003), and in Computer Sciences MSc level (Universidad Nacional del Centro, Argentina, 1991). Adding to this education, I have two decades of international experience, working in interdisciplinary projects connecting engineering, modelling and social sciences with policy and decision-making: 6th EU Framework Program NeWater (New Approaches to Adaptive Management under Uncertainty); AquaStress (Mitigation of Water Stress through new Approaches to Integrating Management, Technical, Economic and Institutional Instruments); EcoShape Building with Nature (BwN) programme; MEDUWA INTERREG Vecht(e) Deutchland-Nederland; Beyond Technologies (Van Braun Stiftung); ReAshore (NWO). Before coming to BC3, I worked at University of Twente (Netherlands, 2009-2019), University of Osnabrück (Germany, 2005-2009) and University of California Davis, USA (2004). 

My research focuses on the topic of uncertainty in collective decision-making processes in the management and governance of common pool resources; topics that I address from both, theory and practice. I have authored more than 90 publications, including 35 peer reviewed articles, 9 book chapters, and more than 50 conference proceedings and several reports and professional publications. My work, has been published in high impact factor journals, like Global Environmental Change, Environmental Modelling & Software, Environmental Science and Policy, Ecology & Society among others. 

I am also an experienced teacher and supervisor. I have developed and taught courses on Integrated and Adaptive Water Management, and Water Governance at the bachelor and MsC level at the University of Osnabrück and at the University of Twente. I have also supervised several students at different academic levels (6 BSc, 14 MSc, 2 PhD) and have served as external referee in PhD committees (9).
