I studied physics at the University of Oviedo. I graduated in general physics with a specialization in optics and radiation physics at the University of Santiago de Compostela. I also completed my doctorate in Marine Sciences, Technologies, and Management there. My research focused on the Lagrangian transport of marine debris into the ocean and the transport of moisture into the atmosphere. I am currently working at IFISC to study the distribution of marine litter in the Mediterranean region.
