My research interests are centered in the study of contemporary sedimentary processes controlling the shelf-to-slope sediment transport and the sedimentary dynamics; the study of seabed morphology and the characteristics of the surface sediment cover, and also the identification of the hydrographic structure of specific areas in order to characterize the hydrodynamics on the slope; to investigate the formation of the depositional bedforms developed over the outer shelf and continental slope; and to determine their evolution in geological time through the sediment record.
