Bárbara Ondiviela


    Barbara Ondiviela has a degree in Marine Sciences from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and a PhD from the University of Cantabria.

    She is a researcher at the Environmental Hydraulics Institute "IH Cantabria" specialized in marine ecology and environmental management of aquatic systems. She obtained her doctoral degree with a methodological standard for the management of coastal waters in port areas. This standard, included in the Spanish Standardization of Maritime Works (as ROM 5.1) and considered in the Spanish regulations for the planning process of the Water Framework Directive, has been implemented in six Spanish ports (Biscay Gulf, Atlantic and Mediterranean). She made her postdoctoral training at the University of Cantabria (Postdoctoral Program) and in the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole-Massachusetts (Mobility Program "José Castillejo" Ministry of Education and Science). Currently, her teaching activity is linked to the Graduate Program of Environmental Management of Water Systems (UC).
