I am a researcher at the Institute of Marine Science (ICM–CSIC) (Barcelona, Spain).
My research focuses on understanding patterns and processes that have and will characterize marine ecosystems and, in particular, changes of, and threats to, marine biodiversity. I study community and food-web dynamics linked with human activities (such as fisheries, eutrophication, invasive species and climate change), and how these translate into changes in ecosystem structure and functioning, and into services that humans obtain from the ocean. I develop and apply a variety of ecological analyses based on ecosystem modelling techniques and statistical tools, and I use historical data, experimental results and field data sets. I currently work on developing and testing scenarios of future trajectories of change to find best solutions for transformative management of the oceans.
