My research topics are focused on the biogeochemical role of marine trace gases in oceanic remote regions, with an special focus in polar regions. Specifically, my PhD focus on the following compounds: DMS, Isoprene and Methyl Iodide. The marine emission of these trace gases contributes to marine aerosol formation and, consequently, they are able to trigger important climatic roles. In order to understand the mechanisms involved in these processes, I aim to combine bio optical and in situ data, from oceanographic cruises to fieldwork on islands, with ecological modelling and remote sensing tools. Ultimately, the goal of my PhD project is to develop novel mathematical models implementing the biogeochemical processes related to the target trace gases, with the aim of assesing its climatic relevance under the current context of global change.
