Research interests

Study of alterations induced in marine invertebrate species (polychaetes) due to organic and inorganic contamination, climate change (pH, salinity and temperature), pharmaceuticals
- Biochemical markers: oxidative stress, energy reserves
- Physiological markers: regenerative capacity of polychaetes; larval development
- Bioturbation
Effects of climate change (pH, salinity and temperature) and polychaetes bioturbation in contaminated sediments (metals and metalloids) - geochemical speciation of elements.
