I am currently focused on analyzing the historical carbonate budgets in the Caribbean reefs, in relation to the ecological change reported since the 1980s, to identify the major drivers affecting the balance between production and erosion in different localities, in order to describe different scenarios of change and possible future trajectories.


Other research interests include successional dynamics in seagrass communities, herbivory, and changes in fish community structure in coral reefs, as well as public awareness of science and Coral reef management.
