Carolina holds a degree in Forest Engineering from the Technical University of Madrid, Spain. She has conducted research on watershed management in Chile and on fish habitat in Spain. After her studies, she gained field experience in Togo where she contributed to the design and establishment of an experimental tree plantation with native species. From 2013 to 2015 she worked for the FAO Committee on Mediterranean Forestry Questions – Silva Mediterranea on a regional project funded by the French Fund for the Global Environment (FFEM). Since then, she works with the Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism on Mediterranean-related issues and monitoring restoration activities in several countries. In 2017, she completed an MSc on Forest Fire Management, which led her to pursue the idea of starting her PhD.
