I am a Ph. D. student at the Department of Ecology of the University of Barcelona and the Centre for Advanced Studies of Blanes. My thesis focuses on fish space-use patterns within Mediterranean marine protected areas, and their implication to conservation and management. I apply acoustic telemetry techniques and novel movement analysis methods to monitor and describe long-term movements of different fish species. In addition, as a member of the ‘MedRecover’ research group (www.medrecover.org), I have also had the opportunity to participate in research and monitoring projects in several marine reserves in the Mediterranean Sea.
