I am founder and director of Dos Mares (www.dosmares.org) created in January 2013, to promote marine research in Central America. Dos Mares is committed to contribute to the scientific development, marine conservation and education and improving marine services in this Region using the available scientific resources, social media networks and marine spatial planning projects initiatives. I posses a Master Degree in Biological Oceanography from Mexico and a Bachelor of Ecology and Natural Resources in Nicaragua, where I'm from originally. My graduate work did focus in fish community ecology in the South Gulf of Mexico, identifying seasonal abundance and biodiversity patters between the estuary and the ocean. However, most of my working experience have been focused in protected areas's planning and management in Central America. I am living in United States from where I have been conducting environmental assessments in industrial facilities in Mexico, Central America, Puerto Rico and United States. I also have gained some experience in climate change, ArcGIS-10 Editing, green building, hazardous materials, health & safety management and marketing.
