General Responsibilities

My research career has been a step by step process where my interest in ascidian taxonomy led me to research on biogeography and both ascidian taxonomy and biogeography motivated my interest for marine invasions. I got my degree on Marine Sciences in Spain (University of Vigo), where I also did my MSc on biogeography of Southern African ascidians, and my PhD on taxonomy and biogeography of ascidians in the cold regions of the Southern Hemisphere.


I came to Australia in 2007 with funds from the Spanish Government, and here I have studied different aspect of biological invasions in the marine environment.

I currently work as a Postdoctoral Fellow for the National Centre for Marine Conservation and Resource Sustainability, where I continue my research on marine bioinvasions.

Impacts of a Wave Energy Converter on marine ecosystems of coastal South Australia (2014 - 2015)$2,000
Description
The primary objective of this project is to determine the impacts of a single wave energy converter on several critical aspects of the marine environment at Port Macdonnell, SA. In order to undertake this research the following research outcomes will be addressed: 1) the effect of the WEC on fish community structure and southern rock lobster abundance; 2) the effect of the WEC on the abundance and diversity of native and non-native fouling communities; 3) the effect of the WEC on acoustic profiles recorded at the structure and at defined distances away from the structure This project will provide new information on how the deployment of a specific type of WEC, an oscillating water column (OWC), will impact the surrounding marine environment. It will utilise a rigorous before-after-control-impact (BACI) design to determine impacts on fish communities, commercial crustacean species and fouling communities. By also determining changes to noise regimes it will provide a framework to understand potential mechanisms behind any changes to biological communities. These data can then be used to design future experiments that for example, determine the effects of noise on fish and crustacean species. Given that this structure is proposed to be the first of an array designated for the region, these data can be extrapolated to take into account further WEC development in the region. This research analyses the effects a Wave Energy Converter (WEC) situated close to the shore at Port MacDonnell SA will have on acoustic profiles, fouling assemblages and pelagic and demersal fisheries species of the region. It is anticipated that this study will encourage better management practices to be developed in regard to the installation of WECs and other renewable energy devices offshore, which will help protect native species in the region.

Preliminary assessment of the impacts of a wave energy converter on marine species native to SA coastal habitats (2013)$3,000
Description
This is a preliminary survey of the possible effects a Wave Energy Converter (WEC) situated close to the shore at Port MacDonnell SA will have on the benthic communities of the region. This preliminary study is the initial stage of a longer PhD project that looks at the native faunal species in the region (community composition, biomass, species diversity) prior to the installation of the WEC to enable comparisons to be made with those found after installation. It is anticipated that this study will encourage better management practices to be developed in regard to the installation of WECs and other renewable energy devices offshore, which will help protect native species in the region.
