Aldo Barreiro Felpeto is a researcher in the field of plankton ecology. He studied biology (1997-2001) and obtained his PhD at the University of Vigo (Spain) (2001-2007). The PhD focused on ecophysiological interactions between zooplankton and toxic phytoplankton. From 2008-2010, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University (Ithaca, USA) on plankton population dynamics. In 2011, he joined CIIMAR, working on community-scale chemical interactions of cyanobacteria. He developed skills in statistics and dynamic modeling using R software, organized more than 20 editions of courses, and conducted collaborations in other research fields.
