My PhD

During my PhD (2017-2020) I investigated the impacts (ecotoxicology), fate and trophic transfer of microplastics in the freshwater environment.

My postdoc and other projects

My current work on microplastic research is focused on the presence of microplastics in the deep sea and their impact on cold water corals. My other current projects focus on bioplastic degradation and citizen science initiatives.

In the media

Science communication is a part of my job as a scientist that I really enjoy. From writting press releases to visiting schools. También comunico en Castellano cuando tengo la ocasión :)!
