Past Postdoctoral Fellow
Claudio was a postdoctoral research associate at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington since spring 2019. He worked as a Research Scientist with CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere in Hobart (TAS) Australia, where he started in April 2017 after finished his PhD. Claudio was also one of the Directors for the Chilean Graduate Conference 2018, a collaboration between Chilean Postgrad Students Association in Australia, CSIRO and the University of Tasmania. Claudio grew up in Linares, central Chile and did his Undergrad (Aquaculture and Fishing Engineer) in Concepcion (BioBio Region) at the Catholic University of Concepcion (www.ucsc.cl). After that, he started to work at the Oceanography Department in “Marines Populations Assessment Laboratory” at University of Concepcion in Chile in several fisheries projects funded by the Chilean Government. Then he decides to start his Master of science in Fisheries at University of Concepcion, working with small pelagic fish and environmental variables in Chile. After the big earthquake in Chile (2010), he made the decision to go to study his PhD in Hobart, starting his PhD in February 2013. Claudio was at the CSIRO for the past 6 years, demonstrated connections in recruitment patterns across southern hemisphere fish stocks related to differing global and local environmental signals. He modelled the implications of incorporating environmental change to demonstrate its importance for sustainable management of global fish stocks. In 2018, Claudio was leading the blue grenadier stock assessment for the SESSF (Australia) and was part of a CSIRO delegation working in collaboration with IFOP in Valparaiso (Chile), implementing Management Strategy Evaluation for the Chilean fisheries.
