The line of reasearch that I currently develop together with Prof. Elizabeth Wolkovich (Harvard University; University of British Columbia) on projecting future phenology of winegrape varieties has a great potential for scientific outreach. As an example, I have participated in a recent influential paper studying global diversity patterns in wine grapes ( Wolkovich et al. 2018;Nature Climate Change ) that is receiving a great deal of media attention (Altmetric score: 390), which is a perfect platform to inform and educate the general public about the relevance of climate change and its effects on our lives.

Examples of my research on the media:

  • El vino emigra empujado por el calentamiento El Pais
  • Entrevista en Onda Cero: Variedades de uvas y vides y su adaptación al cambio climático ( Onda Cero Radio, from 1h:10min )
  • How climate change could change the taste of your wine ( Millenium Post )
  • A changing climate, changing wine ( Phys.org )
  • Los viticultores deben optar por uvas que se adapten mejor al cambio climático ( La Vanguardia )
  • Adiós a las uvas Pinot Noir, Chardonnay o Cabernet: el vino ante el cambio climático ( El Economista )
  • El cambio climático también afectará al vino y a nuestro gusto por el vino ( Portal Comunicación UAH )
