I am technician in Pathological Anatomy and Citology since 2004. I achieved a grant of Xunta de Galicia in 2004-2006 in the group of fisheries Ecology of IIM-CSIC.

Inside the lab’s staff of the group I am in charge of the following tasks: histological processing for fish reproductive studies; fish fecundity estimations (image analysis and stereological techniques); quantitative determination of biochemical components in fish tissues for bionergetic studies; also  calorimetry; but currently my main activity is focused on determination of age and growth in fish.

During this time, I have specialized in esclerochronology and I have participated in internacional workshop on validation of otoliths readings.

I participated in some oceanografhic and fisheries surveys (Newfounland and Galician waters) as part of the scientific crew for data collection and biological sampling earch.
