    We speak with Andrea Duane, postdoctoral reasearcher at CTFC (Forest Technology Center of Catalonia) and associated with CREAF (Center for Ecological Research and Forestry Applications). She has dedicated the last 8 years to studying wildfire behavior. She uses numerical ecology to predict fires and their supression probability at medium and long-term bases. She has improved Lluís Brotons' Medfire simulation model and ensures that the sixth generation of wildfires will reach the north of the peninsula in the next 30 years.
