Carolina Marín

I studied Marine Biology at the Universidad Nacional, Costa Rica and I´m currently doing my PhD at the Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC). I have always been fascinated by the marine microbiology, mainly the diversity and abundance of planktonic communities as well as the factor that may affect them.

In my thesis, I want to explore the structure of microbial communities in different environments to determine patterns of connectivity in marine microbial communities.
