I am a chemical engineer with a MsC in Environmental Contamination and Toxicology and I am working as a Researcher at Efficient and Sustainable food chain department in AZTI.

My work is focused on performing Environmental Footprint of food products and diets through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) methodologies in order to ecodesign new food products and diets and/or minimize environmental impact of food value chain.

Besides, I am working on different projects developing prototypes and multi-criteria ad hoc software tools for the implementation, calculation, verification, and effective communication of the environmental footprint of food products.
