Building 2, Level 2. Office number: 2206-WS18.


With my research, I aim to understand the communities and their dynamics, as well as the effects of anthropogenic impacts on them.

I strive to become a researcher flexible enough to work in a different array of projects, where I can apply my knowledge and expertise of Ecology to understand and protect the valuable marine ecosystems and their diversity around the world, whether they may be coastal or in the deep-sea or anything in-between.
