I’m a biological oceanographer working on the field of zooplankton ecophysiology. The main goal of my PhD thesis was the development of rearing techniques in mysids to study their respiratory metabolism. I am currently pursuing my postdoctoral work in the EOMAR research group at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. My current research aims to determine the ingestion rate of microplastic in mysids cultures and their transfer through the food chain. I expect to contribute to understand the risk of the microplastic accumulation in the oceans and carry on an awareness campaign about it.
