Juan Antonio Pascual Aguilar

I am a Graduate in geography and history from the University of Valencia in 1991 and PhD in geography from the same University in 2002. Since obtaining the title of doctor I have done various types of work related to the management of resources, degradation of soils through due to anthropogenic sealing, spatial processes analysis of soil and water and the analysis of the land use dynamics with GIS techniques. Much of the scientific work that I have developed it has been done.since the year 2000 in the Research Center on desertification (Centro de Investigaciones sobre Desertificación-CIDE)

At the Center I developed technical and scientific support tasks at the Department of Calidad ambiental y suelos (Environmental quality and soils) based on Desertification and restoration of Mediterranean ecosystems and Environmental forensics and landscape chemistry”. I am actively helping also in the scientific part, as evidenced by publications and presentations in congresses in recent years. Within the scientific activity carried out, I have participated in a total of 14 competitive research projects, 9 of them of national calls, two European grants and three calls from the autonomous administration.

I have also developed teaching activities of specialization including the delivery of seminars and conferences and teaching in Masters. I am currently a regular Lecturer in the Master’s degree in hydrology and management of natural resources of the University of Alcalá and the Master of Cultural heritage, identification, analysis and management of the University of Valencia. Teacher collaboration has enabled the co-direction of a doctoral thesis and the supervision of more than 25 works of Master
