Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM)
I am graduated in Marine Science for the University of Las Palmas (Canary Islands, Spain) and I hold a MSc in Environmental Management of Water Systems for the University of Cantabria in collaboration with the Environmental Hydraulics Research Institute. I developed my master research thesis at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain), focusing on coastal risk assessment in the framework of the European research project Risc-kit (www.risckit.eu).
