Marine Biology Area Volunteer

I was a volunteer at the Seamount Project led by the Charles Darwin Foundation.

For six years, I studied ecology and marine biology in Ecuador and Australia. Previously, I have conducted biodiversity and taxonomic studies of coastal and deep-water ecosystems.

I collaborated on the creation of a deep-sea species guide for the Galapagos Islands. My professional goal and passion is to grow in the field of scientific research and work for the conservation of marine ecosystems.
