My Research Interests

My research focus on (i) the responses of the softbottom benthic ecosystems affected by aquaculture to provide knowledge and tools to prevent the loss of ecosystem services provided by these ecosystems, and (ii) the understanding of the role of salmon farming as a driver of changes in the associated communities by using the socio-ecological and ecosystem services framework and the management syndromes.

My Objectives in CoastCarb

I will be working on the evaluation of sensitivity of coastal ecosystems to disturbances such as salmon farming. In addition, I expect to analyze how the social license and acceptability frameworks may apply to Chile as an element of environmental governance.
