Sandra Marín Arribas

Associate Investigators

Associate Professor of the Aquaculture Institute of the Universidad Austral de Chile.

Ms. Marín has a Degree in Biological Sciences from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and a Master of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries from Texas A&M University, United States.

She has studied the ecology and management of natural resources, analyzing the responses of systems impacted by anthropogenic activities with a focus on environmental sustainability.

In aquaculture, she has focused on the aquaculture-benthic system relationship, generating knowledge and tools that will foster environmental sustainability. In terrestrial systems, she has studied the responses of the relative importance of anthropogenic factors that determine changes in land via a systems approach and modeling and, more recently, the interaction between socio-ecological systems and ecosystem services for territorial planning and, thus, the promotion of sustainability.

She has also investigated host-parasite interactions associated with salmonids and native fish, and has studied productive and sanitary management in salmon farming for promoting sustainability.
