Oceanography, physical-biological interaction, submesoscale processes
As an oceanographer, my scientific career has been mainly focused on the study of physical-biological interactions. In the beginning, I took part in the interregional projects RAIA and RAIA.co at the Interdisciplinary Center of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR-Porto). My main objective was to map the different transport routes in the NE Atlantic and evaluate their environmental impact using different Lagrangian tools. Later, in 2015, I initiated my PhD thesis, within the Project Mesoscale and submesoscale processes in the Strait of Gibraltar: The Trafalgar-Alborán connection (MEGAN), at the University of Cádiz. The main objective was to determine the influence of hydrodynamics on the distribution and dispersion of inorganic and organic fractions, in and from the Strait of Gibraltar towards the Alborán Sea. To meet the different goals, I had to apply different methodologies, including satellite image analysis, in situ data, and different numerical models. Now, I am currently working at the Institute of Marine Science of Andalusia (ICMAN) of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), supporting different projects by analyzing several remote sensing datasets.
