Confirmed plenary speakers:
Dr. Phil Kramer (previously announced)
Dr. Roberto Iglesias-Preito (Pennsylvania State University, USA)
Roberto Iglesias-Prieto, professor of biology, focuses his research on coral biology. One of Iglesias-Prieto's most recent contributions demonstrated an important function of the nonliving components of coral in capturing light that is used by the living components in photobiological processes, showing how global warming patterns are adversely affecting these communities. Before joining the faculty at Penn State, Iglesias-Prieto was professor in the Instituto de Ciencias del Mar y Limnologia at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México from 1996 to 2016 and was head of the Reef Systems Academic Unit there from 2008 to 2014. He was senior scientist in the Department of Ecology at the Centro de Investigación Cientifica y Estudios Superiores de Ensenada in Mexico from 1994 to 1996 and a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara from 1993 to 1994. Iglesias-Pietro earned his doctoral degree in aquatic and population biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1993.
