Juan Pardo

PhD Research Fellow

I am a marine biologist and coastal manager exploring species interactions and ecosystem dynamics, with a keen interest in sustainability initiatives. 

My ongoing PhD project aims to better understand how climate change-related stressors have been affecting the benthic communities (i.e., organisms that live at the bottom of a body of water), with a particular focus on their structuring, functioning and influence on carbon fluxes.

I am a member of the Centre for Coastal Research (CCR) and the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), Region South.
