CV Summary

I am a researcher at the Centre Oceanografic de les Balears (Spanish Institute of Oceanography, IEO) currently working as a member of the Marine Reserve (RESMARE) research group. After graduating in Geography (University of Barcelona) I did a master’s program on Marine Ecology (University of the Balearic Islands) and one in Marine Resource Management (University Centre of the Westfjords).

My Marine Ecology master’s thesis was developed at the Centre Oceanographic de les Balears (COB-IEO) and it focused on studying the usage of space by the Mediterranean slipper lobster (Scyllarides latus) within the national park of Cabrera’s Archipelago. The thesis of Marine Resource Management was developed at the Estación Costera de Investigaciones Marinas (ECIM-UC) and studied the spatial characteristics of kelp forests (Lessonia trabeculata) at different areas of the Central coast of Chile.

I am developing my expertise in the usage of geographic information systems (GIS) and seabed mapping as tools to enhance the understanding of the relationship of marine species and their environment so that we can improve our relationship with the ecosystem by managing and conserving its resources in a sustainable and responsible way.

My current project consists on developing a bionomic cartography of the Marine Reserve of the Columbretes Islands Archipelago as part of the LIFE INTEMARES European project.
