Short CV

Inma Batalla is a postdoc at BC3. She holds a PhD in Sustainability of Livestock Systems at Universidad del País Vasco, a MsC in Rural Development (Agricultural economics and rural sociology) at the University of Córdoba and a BCs in Agricultural Engineering at the University of Extremadura.
She has experience in the sustainability assessment of farming systems with a multicriteria perspective. Wide experience in holistic analysis of farming systems using economic, social and environmental indicators to give a better comprehension of the situation of primary sector towards its viability in the long term. She has worked with special emphasis in climate change impacts of livestock through a Life Cycle Assessment approach to use them as start point to draw mitigation and adaptation strategies.

She has collaborated in some research projects related to sustainability assessment, in one of them, she got a PhD fellowship from the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INIA) to develop her PhD in Neiker Tecnalia.
Nowadays she is participating with BC3 in KONTRAE (Emergency and dissemination of resistance to antibiotics: links between human health, livestock, food and the environment) and RTA 2015-00058-C06 (Manure management in dairy cattle systems in Northern Spain: efficiency in nutrient use, GHS mitigations and reduction of carbon foortprint )

She is member of RED REMEDIA-Spanish Network for Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases Emissions from the Spanish Agroforestry Sector

She is really interested on exploring the interactions amount different indicators and its implications in different contexts to enhance sustainable agriculture practices able to empower rural areas and agriculture communities.
