Alberto Rodríguez-Ramírez has been an active coral reef researcher for 17 years, studying and monitoring long-term trajectories in marine ecosystems, including seagrass and mangroves, as well as coral reefs in the Caribbean region and the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). He completed his PhD at The University of Queensland focusing on the reconstruction of historic disturbances to coral reefs, coral responses and water quality changes for the southern GBR using geochemical proxies from coral archives and secondary sources of information.
Currently he is annotating images for the XL Catlin Global Reef Record, conducting the post-processing of coral reef images and quantitative/ecological analysis.
Prior to starting his PhD program at UQ, he held positions of ever-increasing national and international responsibility and leadership at the Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas y Costeras (INVEMAR) in Colombia.
