Degree PhD student
Research Area(s) Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology , Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology
Research Activities Data analysis in oceanography and biogeochemistry. Researching in microbial processes realted with the production of greenhouses gases (N2O y CH4). Researching in Aerobic Respiration, chemosynthesis and N cycling in Oxygen Minimum Zones. Carrying out my PhD thesis about design of Marine Protected Area

Me he dedicado al análisis de datos oceanográficos y biogeoquímica en el océano costero. Investigué procesos microbianos relacionados a la producción de gases invernadero (N2O y CH4). Investigué la respiración aeróbica, la quimiosíntesis y el reciclaje de N en Zonas de Mínima de Oxigeno. Llevo a cabo mi proyecto de tesis Doctoral sobre diseño de Áreas Marinas Protegidas.
