Short CV

Javier Martínez-López is a Biologist with a MSc on Freshwater Ecosystems Management and Assessment (University of Murcia, Spain) and a second MSc on Environmental Engineering and Consulting (EOI - Escuela de Organizacion Industrial, Spain).

In 2014 he received his PhD in Ecology on the topic "Modelling and establishment of plant indicators of ecological status for semiarid mediterranean saline wetlands" from the Ecology and Hydrology department of the University of Murcia (Spain).

His main research topics are landscape ecology, remote sensing, ecosystem services and spatio-temporal ecosystem modeling using several open source programming languages, such as R, Python and GRASS GIS.

He worked on several projects at the Ecology and Hydrology department of the University of Murcia (Spain), such as the 'Integrated Modelling for the Sustainable Management of the Mar Menor lagoon', the 'Application of the European Water Framework and the Natura 2000 Network on the Segura Basin' and the 'Millenium Ecosystem Asessment in Spain'. He has also been coordinating several international environmental projects as a project manager at ttz-Bremerhaven (Germany).

He was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission working in Ispra (Italy) on the Digital Observatory for Protected Areas developing spatial biophysical habitat models and indicators for monitoring the state and pressures of protected areas globally.
