Mr Erik Simon Lledó is a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

2013-2014: MSc in Marine Environmental Protection, School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University

2003-2012: BSc (Hons) in Biological Sciences, University of Barcelona

I specialised in marine ecological conservation during my BSc by undertaking several internship placements in different institutions in direct contact with protected areas, such as the Universidad Catolica del Norte (Chile), La Trobe University (Australia), and Bangor University (Wales). During my MSc project, I learned about habitat and niche mapping and its application for species detection and its management. Before starting my PhD thesis at NOC I worked as coordinator of a reef protection project for Bangor University’s Marine Ecology & Technology group. I currently focus my research on the relation between biodiversity and the environmental setting in abyssal ecosystems, especially in polymetallic nodule fields.

Research interests

• Fundamental ecology and marine protection
• Abyssal biodiversity and taxonomy
• Habitat mapping and GIS
• Species distribution modelling
• Imagery analysis and its application for benthic ecology
