Istudy the productivity, metabolism and nutrient dynamics in seagrass ecosystems and I particularly focus on the biological response of seagrass ecosystems to environmental disturbance (e.g. eutrophication, aquaculture) and global change (e.g. acidification, warming). I have contributed in 34 peer-reviewed scientific publications, being the first author in 12 of them (2019 SCOPUS h index = 17 and 5-year impact factor ISI-JCR = 123.30, with 1357 total citations and 1301 citations excl. self-citations), and in 35 presentations in national and international conferences. I have 98 co-authors from 44 research institutes and 15 countries. I have supervised 3 undergraduate and 3 master students and currently supervise 1 PhD and co-supervise 2 PhD students. I have co-ordinated and/or participated in 27 European and national research projects. Since 2015 I have received > 100.000 EUR of funding through competitive research projects.
