  • My research and teaching activities at the under- and post-graduate levels are related to different aspects of animal production systems, especially in dairy small ruminants. I have worked on different aspects of these systems, focusing my research on lactation biology and milk production of sheep and goats, and different factors affecting these systems: machine-milking, milking routines, animal feeding and environment (heat and cold stress).
    Recently, I have been carrying out activities related to food sovereignty and the impact of intensive production systems on the development of populations, within the framework of a multidisciplinary research group.
