I am a passionate marine ecologist with a focus on conservation. I also have a solid background in environmental sciences, specifically on climate and global changes, including the socio-economic area. I have research experience on impacts of climate change on coastal ecosystems, covering genetics and genomics approaches, species distributuion modelling and ecophysiology experiments. I am now exploring the policy and decision-making process and progresses in relation to sustainable development goals at the United Nations. I am naturally curious and love exploring new places and cultures, particularly by means of photography, music, SCUBA diving or rock climbing.
