Giancarlo was born in Lima, Peru, where he spent most of his life. He got a B.S. in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Fisheries Sciences at the National University of San Marcos (Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, UNMSM, the oldest university in America). Before beginning his Ph.D. studies, he worked for four and half years as a fisheries scientist at the Marine Instituto of Peru (Instituto del Mar del Perú, IMARPE), where he studied the population dynamics and spatial ecology of small pelagic fish in the northern Humboldt Current System. During that time, he also pursued M.S. studies in Applied Mathematics at UNMSM. In Fall 2018, he became a Ph.D. student at Oregon State University, where he studied the impacts of climate on fish somatic growth using population dynamics models. He joined the Punt Lab in Spring 2022 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. His research interests include spatiotemporal dynamics of commercially important fisheries, especially in the northern Humboldt Current System and the Bering Sea, fish stock assessment models, and individual-based models.
Giancarlo is now based at AZTI, Spain.
