As a PhD student in biology I focus marine species physiological responses to thermal stress. By conducting trials that evaluate how the marine heat waves could affect intertidal communities, I try to detect different resilience between populations of the same species to cope with this events. With a degree electrotechnical and computer engineering, I develop tools that allow long term experiments with tides, water and atmosphere temperature control. My goal is to perform experiments that could help predict and macro-ecological consequences of local adaptation to climate change.
