I devoted my academic career to research the environmental levels and biological effects of hazardous chemicals in Latin America coastal areas. Most of the articles I have published have been related to environmental impacts related to antifouling biocides. In addition, I have collaborated in some studies dedicated to other classes of classical contaminants such as PAHs and organochlorine compounds, as well as in integrated assessments of sediment quality.
