Research

At the present moment, I investigate the provision of ecosystem services by seagrass and salt-marsh ecosystems. In particular, how these ecosystems can benefit humans through their capacity to store carbon, purify the water and support biodiversity, including commercial fish and bivalve species. My background is mainly focused on the acclimation and responses of seagrasses to environmental changes (light, nutrients, hydrodynamics, ocean acidification) at the plant level, integrating morphological and mechanical aspects. I have also investigated the effects of chemical pollution on marine organisms using experimental and modelling tools.
