Development of harmful algal bloom monitoring methods and forecast system for sustainable aquaculture and coastal fisheries in Chile (Monitoring of algae in Chile)

New Laboratory Assistant and the Outreach Coordinator started working on the project!


    Dr. Marco Campos, doctor in Science and Natural Resources, has started working on our project from April 2021 at UFRO as a laboratory assistant, replacing Dr. Ignacio Rilling, the former assistant. Dr. Campos mainly cooperates with UFRO´s research activities to progress our project, including the ‘holobiome’ analyses of all DNA samples extracted by other Chilean members.



    On the other hand, Dr. Alejandro Murillo, doctor in biology – molecular genetics and microbiology, has started working as a Communications and Outreach Coordinator of our project from January 2021 at CREAN-IFOP, Puerto Montt. Dr. Murillo is mainly working to support and assist Chilean and Japanese researchers in having a concrete communication strategy in order to organize various outreach activities to achieve the project’s social implementation goals.


    The MACH-SATREPS team wish them the best of luck, and we will work together to reach the project objectives during the remaining two years of execution
