I combine field work and mathematical modeling to better understand and project the combined effects of climate and fishing on living marine resources.
Originally from Brittany in France, I was awarded a Ph.D. in Biology from Memorial University of Newfoundland studying themigratory behaviour of Atlantic cod under the supervision of Dr. Joe Wroblewski and Alain Fréchet.
After my doctoral studies, I conducted a PostDoc at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute working with Dr. Andrew Pershing on modeling impacts of climate on fisheries.
During my freetime, I enjoy outdoor activities such as kitesurfing, scubadiving, moutain biking, hiking and camping.My full CV
Andrés is originaly from Costa Rica, where he graduated with a Bachelor degree in Biology at the University of Costa Rica.
During his undergraduate, Andrés worked on several research projects on different fisheries from artisanal to semi industrial. The last couple of years, he has been studying the effects of marine protected areas on the ecology and management of fish in coral reefs.
Andrés is interested in quantitative methods applied to the management of marine resources. He is currently enrolled in the M.Sc. in Fisheries Sciences in the stock assessment stream. For his research project, Andrés will be working on the spatiotemporal variability in northern shrimp life-history.
