Having gained some experience in climate-fisheries relationships, I am very interested in inter-disciplinary projects involving specialists from different sectors such as sicentists, politics, economics, lawyers etc., in order to find common interests. It is my belief that progress achieved in the knowledge of climate enables the integration of scientific information in socio-economic activities. I am therefore willing to participate in the development of services which could be usefully applied in sustainable development programmes.
