MSc in Agricultural Chemistry (1999, University of Murcia) and PhD in Science (2003, University of Murcia). I have developed my research work associated to several projects at “Department of Soil and Water Conservation and Organic Waste Management” (Spanish National Research Council, CEBAS-CSIC, Spain), “Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering” (University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada) and “Department of Botany, Ecology and Plant Physiology” (University of Cordoba). These projects have been highly focused on solving the problems associated with waste management, adding value to organic waste through options such as composting, anaerobic digestion, and pyrolysis.
