Background

I am a researcher at the Instituto Español de Oceanografia (IEO) and currently have a partial position at CEES, within the GreenMAR project.

I am interested in how marine ecosystems respond to climate and fishing, using statistical analyses of time series. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of marine systems: the Bay of Biscay, the North Sea, the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea. Most of this work was done in collaboration with my CEES colleagues of the Marine Group.

My current research, which links me to the CEES, focuses on the concepts of regime shifts and resilience in three marine systems, the Baltic Sea, the Barents Sea and the Icelandic Seas (GreenMAR project). I am also member of the ICES Working Group on Ecosystem Assessment of Western European Shelf Seas (WGEAWESS) where I contribute with the Gulf of Cadiz (SW Spain).
