Inés Mazarrasa Elósegui

Written by

Dr. in Marine Ecology by the University of the Balearic Islands (October 2016).

Inés graduated in Biology in the Cumplutense University of Madrid with a specialization in Environmental Sciences, in 2010. She then joined the Global Change Research Group of the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA-CSIC) in Mallorca where she participated in different projects related to the effects of Global Change in marine ecosystems. There she also conducted her PhD thesis funded by a fellowship from the Government of The Balearic Is. Her thesis focused on the assessment of the role seagrass meadows play as carbon sinks and their potential for climate change mitigation. Thanks to a research fellowship “Beca Iberoamericana Santander Investigación” from the “Santander Universidades” foundation, Inés conducted a four months stay in the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) at the University of Costa Rica (October 2016) to contribute to the first assessment of the carbon sink capacity of seagrass meadows of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica.

She is particularly interested in coastal ecosystems ecology, the role they play in climate change mitigation, both as carbon sinks and as coastal protection, and their vulnerability to human pressures: eutrophication, erosion and pollution.

María Recio

Written by

María Recio has a degree in Biology from the University of Oviedo. She is currently a Ph.D student at the IH Cantabria, where she is completing her doctoral thesis entitled "Methods for the assessment of the littoral habitat conservation status in the context of the Natura 2000 network".

Their research interests are focused on the study of the littoral vegetation. She mainly analyzes the distribution and the conservation status of the estuarine and sediment dune systems, and their response to the anthropogenical stressors.

Based on these studies, María has participated in several national and international projects.

Felipe Fernández

Written by
Felipe Fernandez has a BSc in Biology, holds an MSc in Geographic Information Systems from Edinburgh University and an MSc in Environmental Management of Aquatic Systems from Cantabria University. He was awarded a prize by the Fundación Alfonso Martín Escuderoprogram entitled "Research fellowships at Universities or Research Institutions abroad" and his professional activity has taken place at several international research institutions: AZTI Tecnalia, The Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) or the Environmental Brazilian Institute (IBAMA). Currently, he is the head of the Information Technology Team (IH-IT).

His research focuses on relational database observation models and geospatial apps (Web and desktop). One of his main lines of research is the management of environmental data and dynamic use through the development of Environmental Management Systems and Decision Support Systems (DSSs).

Currently, the coordination tasks of the IH-IT Teamfocuses on three main aspects: centralizing the computational capacity, developing Technology Transfer Products and promoting the good use of Information Technology at IH Cantabria.

Javier García

Written by
Javier Garcia Alba (Javi) has a MSc/BSc in Physics (1997 - 2002) from the Faculty of Science (Physics Section) of the University of Zaragoza, specializing in Optics. He then continued his studies with a MSc in Database and Internet (2002-2003) taught at the Faculty of Science (Mathematics Section) of the University of Zaragoza. Since 2011, he is a PhD from the University of Cantabria with the thesis "Study of turbulent jets with CFD models: Application to submarine outfall design."

Professionally, he began his career as a graduate in 2004 in the Information Technology Multinational STERIA as a systems engineer. In October 2005, he began researching in the field of fluid mechanics, technical hydraulics, physical oceanography and water quality, first in the Submarine Outfall and Environmental Hydraulics Group of the University of Cantabria and later as part of IH Cantabria. Since then he has made participated in several studies, covering various topics such as mathematical modeling of water resources management, the study of hydraulics and transport and mixing using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), the water quality modeling in rivers, estuaries and coastal areas, the outfall modeling and design, the sewage systems modeling and flooding studies. In turn, Javi obtained the Venia Docendi grant from the Department of Water Science and Technology and Environment for teaching undergraduate courses (Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulics and Hydrology II) and graduate courses (Assessment of the polluting processes effects; Integral design of sewage systems and coastal discharges),caurses in which he has assisted as a teacher since 2006.
