Ignacio Moreno-Garrido is a researcher at the ICMAN, getting his position in July 2008.
His main research topics include marine microalgal ecotoxicology, designing toxicity bioassays on planktonic as well as benthic species. He is also experienced in microalgal immobilization for in situ experiments. Before getting his position, he studied in the University of Granada (Biological sciences, specialization in Botany), and developed his PhD thesis at the ICMAN under the supervision of Dr. Luis M.Lubián.
