Rosana Ourens got her PhD at the University of A Coruña (Spain) in 2013. During her 9 years affiliated with the Marine Resources and Fisheries Group, she was involved in several research projects focused on characterizing and monitoring the fishing activity in small-scale fishery systems. Her thesis, titled 'Life history and population dynamics of the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus', highlights the biological characteristics that may determine the success of the management measures for the echinoid fisheries in Galicia (NW Spain).

Her current research is focused on contributing solutions and strategic tools for promoting fishing policies seeking a sustainable relationship between nature and human well-being. You can find a detailed description of her research in her Lab Site Link.
