Research

Dr. Coral Ortiz is currently carrying out research on farm machinery and on occupational risk prevention in agriculture systems. She has been working in sixteen competitive research projects and has twenty four JCR research publications. She has co-directed two PhD thesis, supervised fifteen Master thesis and thirty-six final degree thesis. Nowadays, she is the Secretary of the Spanish Society of Agricultural Engineering (www.agroingenieria.es).
