Short CV

Maialen Garmendia Maylin was graduated in Environmental Sciences in 2006 at the University of the Basque Country. She got a MSc in Environmental Contamination and Toxicology in 2007 and obtained a PhD in Environmental Sciences in 2013 (both at the University of the Basque Country).

Her research field concerns the assessment of the environmental impacts that human activities produce on marine ecosystems. She is specialized in the assessment of Eutrophication impacts.

The PhD was entitled “Testing tools for the assessment of phytoplankton biological status and eutrophication, within the Basque coast (Southeastern Bay of Biscay)” and was developed at AZTI-Tecnalia under the supervision of Marta Revilla and Javier Franco.

During her PhD she worked in National (EUTROFIND) and European FP7 (WISER) projects. During this period she also worked at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States, comparing methodologies to evaluate the Risk of Eutrophication in the Basque estuaries.

After her PhD, she has worked at the Autonomous University of Barcelona within a European FP7 project named MEDINA (Marine Ecosystem Dynamics and Indicators for North Africa).

Her work has also succeeded in publications in international journals such as Biogeochemistry, Estuaries and Coasts, Marine Pollution Bulletin and Hydrobiologia.
