I was born in San Sebastian (Spain). I studied Biology, obtaining a PhD in Marine Ecology, by the University of the Basque Country (1984). I'm Doctor Honoris Causa in Sciences by the University of Hull (2015), SETAC European Environment Education Award (2017) and COLUMBUS Blue Society Award for impactful knowledge transfer (2018). My first job was teaching biology at this University, before moving to AZTI, a private research foundation, where I has been Head of the Department of Oceanography, Head of the Marine Environment Area, and now I'm Principal Investigator. My main work is making marine ecology research useful for policy-makers and managers, studying the effects of human activities on marine ecosystems, monitoring of marine waters and recovery after impact, and developing methodologies to assess the marine status under European directives, which are used worldwide. I'm member of the Scientific Committee of the European Environment Agency (since 2013). I'm author of more than 235 peer-reviewed papers (SCOPUS Hindex: 55), Editor and member of the Editorial Board of seven international journals. Referee in near 90 international journals and project evaluation agencies, I'm member of different scientific associations (ASLO, CERF, ECSA), serving as chair in numerous international conferences. I have participated in more than 100 European and international projects. I was coordinator of the EU 7th FP project DEVOTES (DEVelopment Of innovative Tools for understanding marine biodiversity and assessing good Environmental Status).
