My Research Interests

Biological oceanography and plankton ecology in all its aspects are my center of interest. From fieldwork and long-term data analyses, to experimental studies on physiological responses of plankton to stress, to modelling, these complementary approaches have shaped my research. My main “playground” is Potter Cove, in 25 de Mayo/King George Island in the northern WAP but since 2017, the Beagle Channel has become a central part of my research activities.

My Objectives in CoastCarb

Together with Ulrike Braeckman we co-lead WP4 “Ecosystem Change and Carbon Storage”, the largest WP in the project, dealing aiming at understanding and quantifying the variability in carbon fluxes and storage from the pelagic to the benthic realms under the effects of global change. I am the scientific contact for CoastCarb in CADIC, and the representative for CONICET in the project.
