Hemnalini Mozaira-Luna. Principal Researcher and Coordinator of the Program on Climate Change and Ecosystem Management of Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans.
My specialty is applying modeling approaches to the management and conservation of marine and coastal resources, and analyzing how anthropogenic impacts influence planning and conservation decisions. I studied Marine Biology at the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur, and received a Doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I joined the CEDO team in 2004, where I started as Coordinator of the Wetlands Research Program (2005-2009). Subsequently, I began to develop research focused on understanding the effects of climate change on marine systems and coastal communities. I have the distinction National System of Researchers Level I, of the National Council of Science and Technology. I am a visiting researcher at the Northwest Fisheries Center, NOAA, in Seattle, WA.
