1993    Comienzo mi carrera profesional como consultor por cuenta propia realizando estudios de impacto ambiental, inventarios de biodiversidad, planes de ordenación cinegética y un plan de conservación de poblaciones de urogallo.

1997    Me doctoro en la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela con una tesis sobre ecología de gaviotas. Esto me convierte en una de las (escasas) personas que de verdad aprecian a esas aves.

1997    Profesor Asociado en el Departamento de Ecología y Biología Animal de la Universidad de Vigo donde tengo a mi cargo asignaturas como Ecología de la Conservación, Evaluación de Impacto Ambiental y Técnicas de Muestreo en Zoología.

2000    Me ocupo de la Oficina de Medio Ambiente de la Universidad de Vigo (OMA) un organismo encargado de la gestión del medio ambiente y sostenibilidad de los campus. Aquí adquiero buena parte de mi experiencia, habilidades y conocimientos sobre la gestión orientada a la biodiversidad. Bajo mi dirección se naturalizaron y restauraron decenas de hectáreas de espacios verdes que incluían hábitats de matorral, bosque, praderas, cursos fluviales, lagunas y estanques con sólidos criterios ecológicos.

2004    En respuesta a la catástrofe ecológica provocada por el petrolero Prestige me embarco en una intensa labor investigadora que dio como resultado algunas de las publicaciones científicas de las que más orgulloso me siento.

2008    Obtengo un contrato Parga Pondal, el Programa de Recursos Humanos del Plan Gallego de Investigación en la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela. Investigo sobre aves marinas, sobre la ecología de las interacciones entre plantas y animales en las montañas y doy clases de Botánica.

2011    Padre de una niña.

2015    Vuelvo al sector privado con Munilla Biodiversidade.

1993 Comezo a miña carreira profesional como consultor por conta propia realizando estudos de impacto ambiental, inventarios de biodiversidade, plans de ordeación cinexética e máis un plan de conservación das últimas poboacións galegas de Pita do Monte.

1997 Doutórome na Universidade de Santiago de Compostela cunha tese sobre a ecoloxía das gaviotas o que me convirte nunha das (escasas) persoas que lle teñen verdadeiro aprecio a esas aves.

1997 Profesor Asociado no Departamento de Ecoloxía e Bioloxía Animal da Universidade de Vigo. Teño ao meu cargo asignaturas como Ecoloxía da Conservación, Avaliación de Impacto Ambiental e Técnicas de Mostraxe en Zooloxía.

2000 Dirixo a Oficina de Medio Ambiente da Universidade de Vigo (OMA) un organismo encargado da xestión do medio ambiente e a sostenibilidade nos campus. Neste cargo adquiro boa parte da miña experiencia, habilidades e coñecementos sobre a xestión orientada á biodiversidade. Daquela fixéronse proxectos de creación e rehabilitación de lagoas, naturalización de aparcamentos, restauración de espazos verdes con sólidos criterios ecolóxicos.

2004 Como resposta á desfeita da catástrofe ecolóxica provocada polo petroleiro Prestige embárcome nunha intensa labor investigadora da que resultaron algunhas das publicacións que máis me compren.

2008 Obteño un contrato Parga Pondal, o Programa de Recursos Humanos do Plan Galego de Investigación, na Universidade de Santiago de Compostela. Investigo sobre aves mariñas, sobre a ecoloxía das interaccións entre plantas e animais nas montañas y máis imparto aulas de Botánica.
