Curriculum Vitae

I am a research scientist specializing in marine natural resources, zoology and biological oceanography.  My primary focus is in global change indicators of stress in coastal benthic populations, marine invertebrate distribution, ecology and physiology, benthic-pelagic coupling processes and marine wildlife conservation. 

     During the last ten years I have been a senior researcher at the Environmental Science and Technology Institute (ICTA-Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain).  Prior to that, I was at the Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Spain) for more than 13 years as a graduate student (Universitat de Barcelona), PhD (Universitat de Barcelona-CSIC) and post doc.

I have extensive experience in coordinating field work and experimental design, as well as coastal monitoring programs. My leadership is demonstrated not only in the accomplishment of project objectives and publication of manuscripts, but also through the advisement of 10 PhDs and 4 post docs. 

I have over 100 scientific articles. My H factor is 28 and my i10 index is 71.

Temi di ricerca

My present lines of research related with Marine Biodiversity and Global Change can be synthesized as: 1) Studying the role of environmental and biological factors of the water column on the distribution, nutritional condition and survival of benthic organisms to increase the knowledge and tools for coastal management. 2) Studying the physiology and trophic ecology of benthic organisms in warm-temperate, tropical, polar and upwelling systems (feeding, reproduction, photobiology, physiology, growth, biochemical balance, energy storage and use, stable isotopes, etc.) in front of global change. 3) Underwater mapping and distribution of benthic suspension feeders through remote and deep diving techniques (Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV)), as a tool for the exploration beyond scuba dive limits (30-40 meters), pioneering the study of the mesophotic zone and also in crossing experimental information with seascape methods to understand energy fluxes in the benthos, carbon sink role of the benthic suspension feeders and the anthropogenic impacts on benthic populations. 4) Conservation research on marine biodiversity in marine protected areas and population recovery and resilience, centered mainly on octocorals, but also in other species of economic importance. 5) Marine ecosystem services and environmental education, studying aspects of natural ecosystem and resource management, including the vision of the animal forest as carbon sinks and source of biodiversity, but also citizen science using tools or ecological economic & anthropological approaches. 

I also developed third-generation biodiesel (marine microalgae) applied protocols, using all the above mentioned knowledge and my network to make a realistic approach to this energy alternative.

Lastly, but just as important, my job as a scientific journalist, reflected in my collaborations with several journals and magazines, demonstrates my strong commitment with scientific outreach (also reflected in eco-thrillers and books for kids). The Blue Planet: a vanishing universe (Debate) and The forgotten continent: visions about Antarctica (Tusquets) are critical essay books that are a strong examples of my efforts to communicate science to a wide audience in a rigorous, but easily comprehensible way. The book Oceans in decline is now available in Springer-Nature (Copernicus collection).
