Engineer in Fisheries Ecology whose research has focused on coastal socio-ecological systems with an integrated approach, considering links between fisheries and applied management, ecology, physical oceanography and the socio-economic dimension involving coastal stakeholders. His studies aim to understand the spatio-temporal dynamics of coastal socio-ecological systems in order to contribute to decision making oriented to improve the welfare of their communities and ensure biodiversity conservation.
Dharma is a biologist and the focus of her research is on understanding past changes in the hydrology of the equatorial and southeastern Pacific. To do so, she has been using stable isotope, radiocarbon, trace element, benthic and planktonic foraminiferal geochemistry in marine sediment records, which reveal information about the water column and bottom water characteristics such as density, aeration, age, relative nutrient content and dissolved oxygen.

Matías is a Marine Biologist with a specialty in Physical Oceanography. His research area is focused on coupled physical-biogeochemical modeling of the ocean, with interest in the spatio-temporal variability of the Minimum Oxygen Zones (MOZ) of the Southeast Pacific. During his career he has sought to understand the contributions of advection, mixing and biogeochemical processes on the dissolved oxygen balance at different spatiotemporal scales.
