Denisse Fierro Arcos

Junior Researcher

Denisse is an Ecuadorian marine biologist who graduated with a Master of Studies (Marine Biology & Geographic Information Systems) from the University of Western Australia. Initially, she came to the Charles Darwin Research Station in 2016 on a scholarship to complete her postgraduate thesis. Her project aimed to describe and compare the composition of mangrove fish assemblages across the Galapagos Archipelago. In January 2019, she came back to the Galapagos to join the Sharks Project where she currently works as a junior researcher. Her focus is on the automation of statistical analyses through the development of scripts in R and Python.

Denisse has previously worked as an environmental consultant in Australia. During this time, she had the opportunity to work in a variety of projects in aquatic systems in Australia and Brazil.
