During the past 3 years, I have been working on Harmful Algal blooms monitoring. In my current position at San Carlos University, as junior researcher, I lead the HAB´s Monitoring in Guatemala. Being an active member IAEA , I have been involved in IAEA projects (e.g. INT7019 / RLA7020) since 2015. During the years 2016-2017 I have been monitoring benthonic dinoflagellates such as Prorocentrum, Gambierdiscus, Coolia and Osteriopsis off the Atlantic coast of Guatemala, in the Caribbean Sea, and at the same time, measured water quality (OD, Temperature, Salinity and pH) at three different sites. Moreover, I´ve been monitoring the phytoplankton community off the coast of the Pacific Ocean of Guatemala, to assess the presence of toxic dinoflagellates and algal blooms, monthly, since 2105. Those data are integrated with water quality measurements (OD, Temperature, Salinity, Alkalinity, pH, NO2 and NH4).
During the last three years I have been working on the following academic material:
