    Research interests

    Global environmental change on marine ecosystems, ecology, and biogeochemistry at various time scales and complexity is a key theme of her research group, focusing on multidisciplinary investigation of marine calcifying organisms at the base of the food web. With her work on the ocean in a changing climate and under human pressure, she is linking CO2 dynamics, climate change and target marine processes and systems. Interest on pressing threats to the marine environment and their societal relevance has led to developing research on ocean acidification, warming and oxygen loss in different regions. The study of marine litter and the cycle of marine microplastics is another research area in her group and a new clean laboratory for microplastic studies opened recently at ICTA-UAB. These interactive global and local change processes alter the marine systems affecting economic activities and human welfare.
