About Carmen Morales Caselles
Hello, I am a Research Scientist at the University of Cadiz working on understanding the inputs, distribution and fate of micro and macroplastics in the Global Ocean. I have a Master's in water and coastal management and a doctorate specialized in marine pollution and ecotoxicology. I spent several years in Paris and Uruguay working as a consultant at UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, where I was closely involved in the coordination of an Integrated Coastal Area Management project on indicators in Latin America and other UN initiatives. Afterwards, I spent several years in Canada, where I worked implementing the PollutionTracker Project, a monitoring program in the West Coast of Canada to assess the presence of contaminants in sediment and their effects on marine organisms. My plan is to keep working towards bridging science and management for an effective protection of the marine environment.
