Cádiz, Spain


I received my B.Sc. in Marine Sciences in 1995 at the University of Cádiz. From 1995 to 2000 I was a Ph.D. student at the Department of Analytical Chemistry, University of Cádiz. I received my M.Sc. in Marine Sciecnes in 1997, and three years later, in 2000, I Ph.D. in Chemistry. The main topics of my Ph.D. dissertation include development and optimization of automatic techniques for the analysis and speciation of inorganic nutrients in seawater, and the study of environmental impacts of the intensive aquaculture in marine waters.
For the period August 2001- June 2004, I was a post-doctoral research associate at the Marine Sciences Research Center at the Stony Brook University, New York. My primary research activities included biogeochemical cycles of metals and nutrients in the ocean and their interactions among atmosphere, waters, biota and sediments, as well as the optimization and development of analytical methods and techniques in environmental chemistry.
Currently I am a researcher in the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) at the Andalusian Marine Sciences Institute (ICMAN) and at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA).
My current research interests are in the following areas:
Biogeochemical cycles, focused on metal and nutrient cycling with its implications for water and sediment quality and ecosystems.
Elemental stoichiometry in natural populations of phytoplankton and its impact on primary production and nitrogen fixation.
Impact of phytoplankton blooms on the cycling of dissolved materials (e.g., metals, nutrients, vitamins) in coastal waters.
Impact of groundwater seepage on the water quality of coastal environments.
Physico-chemical speciation of toxic metals in natural waters.
Environmental Policy Analysis.
