Jonathan Arcos Aguilar

Research Assistants

Geographer and Master in Applied Ecology from the Austral University of Chile.

He has worked on research into benthic systems that are recipients of the pressure exerted by activities of anthropogenic origin, such as the production of salmon in farms and the overexploitation of resources in small-scale fisheries in southern Chile, using various methods of spatial analysis and statistical modeling, for the representation of environmental and ecological patterns derived from these interactions.

Currently, he participates in the development of indicators aimed at representing the sensitivity of the socio-ecological system associated with the impact of the salmon farming industry on the coastal-marine space of channels and fjords in southern Chile. In parallel, he works as a technical research assistant in the Fondecyt project “Unveiling the nature of social-ecological traps: drivers, human responses and potential solutions.”
