Resilience of ecosystems to chemical stressors and climate change scenarios

Organisation: University of Valencia, Spain

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Andreu Rico

My name is Constanza Vega, and I am a PhD Candidate working on building and validating multispecies models using empirical data obtained from mesocosms experiments. I have a BSc in Environmental Biology from the University of Chile. During my undergraduate studies, I developed an interest in ecotoxicology and network theory, which led me to focus my bachelor’s degree thesis on the effects of pollution on food webs. I have specialized in theoretical ecology and programming, being able to code in Python, Java, R, MATLAB, Javascript, SQL and Julia. I also have experience working on mesocosms experiments and fieldwork. I joined the QTOX Doctoral Network as the Doctoral Candidate 10 at the University of Valencia, Spain.
