CV Summary

I hold a degree in Biology at the University of Barcelona (2011) and a Master in Environmental Change: Analysis and Management at the University of Girona (2014). In April 2019, I completed my PhD at the Institute of Aquatic Ecology (University of Girona) on the reproductive and condition status of cold-water marine fish in a context of climate change, thanks to a BR-UdG scholarship. From 2019 to 2020 I worked on research promotion and knowledge transfer for the Department of Environmental Science at the University of Girona and also on environmental consultancy in the private sector. Currently I am working on the assessment of demersal fish and cephalopods populations status within the EU Marine Strategy Framework program, at the ECOBRED group (Ecosystems, Demersal Resources and Benthos group) at the Centre Oceanogràfic de Balears of the Instituto Español de Oceanografía (IEO-COB).

My research interests revolve on the impacts of anthropogenic and environmental pressures on marine ecosystems and its sustainability. I also have a strong growing interest on climate vulnerability and adaptation of fishing communities. During my PhD I worked on the assessment of the status and plasticity of life history traits in pelagic and demersal fish communities, with emphasis on fish reproduction and condition. Part of my PhD was conducted in the Marine Research Institute (Reykjavik, Iceland), the Institute of Marine Research (Bergen, Norway) and the Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas IIM-CSIC (Vigo, Spain). As a PhD student I took part of 4 oceanographic vessel surveys led by different institutions (IFREMER in France, MRI in Iceland and IEO in Balearic Islands-Spain).

The results of my research are published in 6 papers in SCI journals. I have attended 8 conferences (5 international), with 9 oral presentations and 3 posters in total. I have given 10 lectures at the University of Girona and participated as instructor at one international workshops at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (Cambodia) and one national workshop at the IIM-CSIC. I co-supervised one master thesis and 5 graduate final projects, and attended 5 international and 3 national conferences. I have led projects of cooperation for sustainable development in Africa and South America which have been financed by the University of Girona, the Diputació de Girona and crowdfunding. I am passionate about science communication and I love to share my research with school children and general audience through conferences and illustrations.
