I have always considered teaching and popularization of science a central aspect of the research career. Therefore, I try to popularize science through websites, popular articles and books, public presentations in non-scientific forums, tours and other outreach activities.

Since 2008, I have been involved in teaching through different courses on Rangeland Management and Agroforestry systems, Management of Protected Species, Forest Ecology and Geobotany, Experimental Design or Impacts on wildlife. I have also been the main instructor and coordinator of BIO44Y (Plant Biology, Ecology and Evolution) at Stanford University and the major advisor of 7 Final Projects (PFC), 1 International Bachelor thesis, and 2 Master Theses at UPM and Stanford University.  I´m currently co-advising 3 PhD students and two Final Projects. I have also participated in seminars and tours at EBD (Seville), University of Nevada (USA), Jasper Ridge (Stanford University, USA), Forest School (UPM) and Cabañeros National Park (Spain).
