Activity summary

My main research area is the biology and ecology of commercial seaweeds, stressing their management and cultivation, whilst coordinating and participating in national and international R&D projects and actions. As a marine flora expert, I have participated in the national implementation of the Water Framework and Marine Strategy Directives and several other environmental monitoring studies. I also have extensive teaching experience in phycology and algal biotechnology at various levels.
