I am a marine biologist, with a strong background in aquatic sciences and conservation biology. I am keen on the ecology and migratory behaviour of fish. Understanding of the behavioural and physiological mechanisms allows an accurate link between ecology and environment, useful for conservation actions and climate change forecasts. The project I am enrolling at the moment studies the migration of blue and mako sharks through satellite tagging, and compare movements, physiology and predator behaviour applied to climate change and fisheries. Previous research has focused on the oceanic migration of the European silver eel and its physiological consequences, by telemetry tracking and respirometry.
