My research focuses on global change ecology and marine biodiversity conservation, with a special emphasis on investigating the long-term trends in key environmental and biological variables in the world’s oceans; identifying those marine areas most at risk due to climate and human-driven environmental changes; evaluating wildlife responses to environmental changes in highly-impacted marine systems; and designing suitable management alternatives to enhance ecosystems’ resilience to climate change and to ensure a sustainable balance between marine biodiversity conservation and human use of ecosystem services. Over the last several years, my research has contributed to advancing the state-of-the-art in these fields by producing the most spatially explicit assessments on climate and human impacts in the marine environment; providing new insights on the biological consequences of climate change and overfishing; and devising new approaches to identifying key areas for marine biodiversity conservation. To accomplish these goals, I have worked at different levels of ecological complexity (from individuals to communities and ecosystems), with different study models (e.g. seabirds, cetaceans and waterbirds), and in various biogeographical areas (from template to polar regions).
