Assistant Professor of Microbial Ecology and Evolution

Rosentiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science - University of Miami

I am a Catalan microbial ecologists and Assistant Professor at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami. I completed my Bachelors and my PhD in Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology at the University of Barcelona, followed by postdoctoral research at the Institute for Evolutionary Biology (Barcelona), the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) and the Institute of Marine Science (Barcelona). In February 2019 I joined the Marine Ecology and Biology Department at the University of Miami. My research has focused on the study of the ecology and evolution of microbial eukaryotes but recently, I have expanded my scope to the prokaryotes in order to have an integrated view of the microbiome. I am currently investigating microbial community ecology in marine animal-associated environments using cutting edge sequencing technologies and computational biology. I hope that my research can help to have a better understanding on the role that microorganisms play in the response of animals to climate change.
