I am a senior lecturer in marine biology, specialized in larval ecology of benthic invertebrates and benthic ecology. In 1991, I graduated in Biological Sciences at Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de la República, Uruguay. I did my MSc (1996) and PhD (2000) also in Uruguay, in the context of the Uruguayan Postgraduate programme (PEDECIBA) and the German academic exchange programme (DAAD). My theses were developed in the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Marine Station of Helgoland, Germany, focusing on ecological consequences of maternal effects and developmental plasticity. From 1992 to September of 2007, I had a position as Assistente Gr. 2 at Seccion Oceanología, also at Facultad de Ciencias, Uruguay. Between 2003 and 2005 I undertook postdoctoral research also at the Marine Station of Helgoland financed by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

My research interests are focused in determining causes of patterns of distribution of marine organisms with emphases on the larval ecology of marine benthic invertebrates. I work in eco-physiology (effects of environmental conditions on larval growth, development and survival), in undersanding the role of  larval  supply, and phenotypic plasticity (maternal, carry-over, latent and other developmental effects) in driving recruitment of benthic invertebrates. I also work in community ecology, studying causes of patterns of community structure at multiple spatial scales and in the role of larvae for metapopulation connectivity and benthic-pelagic coupling.
