PhD student at UNC-Chapell HILL

Esteban Agudo

I am a marine ecologist interested in exploring how environmental characteristics (i.e. temperature, structural complexity) affect reef communities. I believe cultivating our knowledge of these relationship will help us better understand both, how these systems are entangled with one another, and how each respond to current developments of global change.

Currently, I am a PhD student in the Bruno Lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My dissertation utilizes an experimental approach to study how temperature changes affect ecological processes like herbivory or predation on Galapagos Reefs.
