I am a marine ecologist. I am interested in the adaptation of seabirds to live in the high productive Northern Humboldt Current System. Particularly of three seabirds: Guanay cormorant, Peruvian booby and Peruvian pelican. The focus of my research is the adjustment of reproduction of these seabirds to compete for the same prey (anchovy) and at the same time dealing with environmental variability and the fishing pressure.
