Involvements in SRUK

I am a biogeochemical oceanographer with an interest in outreach and scientific writing. I obtained my BSc in Marine Science and my MSc in Oceanography at the Universidade de Vigo. During my PhD and postdocs I have been studying the chemistry of the oceanic carbon cycle (in particular ocean acidification) and the formation, transformation and circulation of water masses, particularly in the North Atlantic and Southern Ocean. I am currently a Senior Research Associate at the School of Environmental Sciences – University of East Anglia.

I have worked previously at the School of Marine Science and Policy – University of Delaware, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Uni Research (Norway) as well as at the Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas (IIM-CSIC; Spain), the latter being where I completed my PhD.

My background includes participation in several transatlantic oceanographic cruises and short stays at outstanding research centres, which include IFREMER (Brest, France), BIOS (St. George’s, Bermuda), and the Geophysical Institute (Bergen, Norway).

I joined SRUK in 2020 and have been involved in the organisation of events for the Cambridge Constituency as a member of the working group since then. I am also part of the Communications and Online Department as Community Manager.
