More about Cristina
I studied Biology at the University of Granada (Spain) during 2003-2008. In the same University, I completed my Master degree in Microbiology (2008-2009), with specialization in Aquatic Ecology, and the PhD (2009-2014).
My doctoral thesisfocused on the interactive effects of abiotic stress factors such as UVR, temperature and nutrient inputs in primary producers, bacterioplankton and their trophic relationships in Mediterranean ecosystems
Currently I am working within the research project Effects of variables associated with global change on phytoplankton of coastal marine environments of the Patagonian region (PICT 2013-0208).
