Research interests:

Synergetic use of ocean colour, sea surface temperature and altimetry data, for a study of variations in total and new primary production in the upwelling areas of Peru-Chile and Benguela ecosystems.

Analysis of the influence of physical forcing (winds, currents…) and phytoplanktonic diversity in the spatial and temporal variability identified in these areas of study.
