Stefano Ambroso

Graduate in Marine Biology. He has worked at the Institute of Marine Sciences (CSIC) in Barcelona (Spain) since 2009, where his research activity is connected to ecology and to the patterns of spatial distribution of benthic communities. The aim of his PhD research is to understand the structure and dynamics of Antarctic macrobenthic communities in the Weddell sea.

Due to the extreme environmental conditions of the Antarctic continental shelf – its distance from other continents, depth, and the weight of the continental ice – it offers us a great opportunity to better understand how a pristine ecosystem would normally be.
