Research Interest

My research interest covers fisheries oceanography and fisheries ecology. Particularly, I am interested in understanding how fishing impact and environmental forcing shape community structure, as well as life history, population dynamics and distribution of marine resources. Here at COB I work with researches of two groups, the Demersal and Benthic Resources and Ecosystems group and the Larvae Ecology group. I’m currently working in two projects MYFISH, a FP7 project, and ECLIPSAME, a Spanish Ministry funded project.

My main lines of research are:
  • Pelagic seascape ecology: influence of hydroclimatology on the spatial ecology of marine larvae, survival and connectivity processes, as well as community structure and diversity patterns of meroplankton.
  • Synergisms of climate effects and fishing impact on life history and spatiotemporal dynamics of harvested species.
  • Resistance and resilience of impacted marine communities: biodiversity patterns, size spectra and community traits.
  • Trait-mediated ecological processes. Particularly, fishing impact on the interaction between evolutionary and ecological processes (i.e., evolutionary demography).
