Laboratory of Polar Marine Ecosystems (IDEA-CONICET), Argentina

My Research Interests

My research focuses on studying how the Antarctic benthos is responding to the rapid environmental shift experienced by the Antarctic Peninsula, especially related to the progressive retreat of tidewater glaciers under the current scenario of climate change.

My Objectives in CoastCarb

My main interest is to study the processes related to early colonization and ecological succession of marine fauna in the new areas recently free of ice due to the glacier retreat. Particularly, which species respond first and how to identify environmental threats for ecosystem change
