CV Summary

Carme Alomar is part of the research team IMPACT@SEA: Anthropogenic Impacts on coastal ecosystems of the Balearic Centre of Oceanography (COB) of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) which focuses on ecological studies of coastal benthic habitats for its conservation and research on microplastics and marine litter and its interaction with biota and coastal ecosystems. She has a PhD in Marine Ecology from the University of the Balearic Islands (2020), master degree in Marine Ecology from the University of the Balearic Islands (2011) and bachelor degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Barcelona (2010). PhD thesis was conducted at the COB-IEO regarding marine litter and its interaction with seafloor species in the Balearic Islands. She is currently participating in several research projects which focus on marine litter, especially the plastic fraction, and its effects on marine species under laboratory and field conditions as well as in coastal ecosystems including Marine Protected Areas (ACUIPLASTIC, PLASTIC BUSTERS MPAs). Carme is also participating in research projects related to the application of remote sensing techniques to evaluate marine litter (MIREIA) and related to the mitigation and reduction of non organic waste regarding aquaculture practices (AQUA-LIT, REDACUICULTURAPLASTIC). In addition, she has participated in several research projects dealing with anthropogenic impacts on coastal ecosystems: understanding offshore wind farms as experimental and monitoring bases of potential effects on marine biota, analyses of multitrophic aquaculture with stable isotopes tools and assessing anthropogenic impacts on benthic filter bivalve, Pinna nobilis. Additionally, she has participated in scientific surveys researching the impacts of marine litter in coastal ecosystems as well as conducted surveys involving visual census with scuba diving to study marine litter in shallow waters and also to evaluate populations of benthic filter feeders around the Balearic Islands.
