Blanca Figuerola is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Marine Sciences of Barcelona (ICM-CSIC). She received her PhD in Biodiversity from the University of Barcelona. Her research sits between the established disciplines of taxonomy, biodiversity, ecology and conservation paleobiology using understudied marine invertebrate groups (e.g bryozoans) from tropical to cold waters as models for environmental change. During her postdoctoral research career, she has been awarded competitive grants such as SENACYT- STRI (2017), Juan de la Cierva Incorporación (2018) and Beatriu de Pinós-Marie Curie-COFUND program (2020) to work at international research institutions (e.g. Australian Antarctic Division (Australia), Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Panama) and ICM-CSIC). There, she has participated in several multidisciplinary projects involving fieldwork in Antarctic, temperate and tropical regions.
