I am a PhD candidate for the NTNU, working on the biological and ecological spectrum of the TripleDeep Project. One of the cornerstones of my research is helping to get to know the balance between the ecological conservation and the resource extraction of minerals at the bottom of the ocean.
I am a geologist from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia (UNAL), Bogotá, have master's degrees in biology, from the same university and in marine environment and resources, from the Erasmus Mundus programmes of the European Union. My life has been linked to academia for ten years now and I want to dive inside the deep sea. My experience encompasses research in paleoclimate in Colombia and ocean acidification in Colombia, working together with the coastal ecosystems modelling group of the UNAL. My last work was about ocean water conditions offshore Uruguay, by means of palynology, working together with ocean scientists in the United Kingdom.
For the last few years, I decided to participate in some other areas as humanities and media, reaching a recognition for the mixed reality hackathon “Humboldt y Las Américas” as finalists in Colombia and volunteered for the Museo Nacional de Colombia, bringing people closer to knowledge. I also worked as a science tutor for students from remote regions of Colombia at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. After exploring these new worlds, I am keen to work in this new, exciting and challenging environment, collaborating from my area towards the proper use of natural and ocean resources.
