My research has been focused in the Ovine species, particularly in dairy breeds. Specifically the productive management in farms for the improvement of the hygienic-sanitary quality of milk: residues of veterinary drugs, toxins, and microbial contaminants, their detection and their effect on dairy products has been studied along these years of investigation.
A second line focus on the use of natural methods to combat the major defects of microbial origin in cheese.
Studies in milk from non-commercial species, such as deer (cervus elaphus hispanicus) milk: composition and technology of its potential dairy products, has been recently started.
