She is currently leading a research line on cognition in ungulates. The results of this work have been published in numerous articles in international scientific journals. Since 2010, she also conducts ethological trips and safaris to Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Botswana, Indonesia and Galápagos, an activity that he enjoys.
