Main Research Lines
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are an important tool in the context of marine spatial planning to support both conservation and sustainable harvesting. Marine species are shifting their distribution because of climate change, potentially compromising the benefits and management objectives of currently established MPAs. My research focuses on better understanding the consequences of climate change to marine conservation.
Latin America is a highly diverse and dynamic region and there are many contexts to fisheries management and conservation. Nevertheless, there are several cross-cutting themes in Latin American countries, and very likely throughout the region. As a Brazilian-Mexican citizen, I am committed to support policy-making and resource management decisions in Latin American countries with a strong interdisciplinary science.
