Technician (CEAB-CSIC)

My main interests are biodiversity, ecology and conservation of marine benthic ecosystems. During my PhD I focused on sponge taxonomy and biogeography, assessing the influence of marine water currents on the distribution patterns of deep-sea sponges across the Mediterranean and Atlantic Ocean. My interest in marine conservation led me to explore other benthic communities such as macroalgal forests, focusing on their responses to environmental stressors, mainly driven by global change, and their conservation and restoration.

I am currently working as a transversal figure linking research to project coordination and administration, which has become an enriching and dynamic approach for my career.
