Imma Oliveras Menor

Plant and ecosystems ecologist, fire ecologist

I was born in a rural town in the mountains of Catalonia, and I have had a passion for nature since I was a toddler. At the age of nine, I witnessed how wildfires sweeped across the neighbouring mountains next to home, and over the years I followed the vegetation recovery. This sparked many questions that today I am trying to answer. I studied Environmental Sciences at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and then specialised in studying the responses of vegetation to droughts and fires.
