This is the personal webpage of Òscar Guadayol i Roig. I am a marine ecologist, broadly interested in how biological organisms (particularly plankton) and communities, respond to the environmental fluctuations, both in time and space, of physical properties in the water column and the floor.

Since Agust 2013 I am a postdoc researcher at the Physical Ecology Lab, where we are looking at the ecological role of microbial shape.

Previosuly, between 2010 and 2013 I worked as a postdoc researcher in the Thomas Lab at Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB), Kaneohe, Hawaii. There we looked at ways to characterize fine-scale spatial and temporal environmental variability in coral reefs.

Between 2008 and 2010 I worked as a Beatriu de Pinós fellow in the Plankton/Bio-Optics Group  with Professor Tim Cowles, at the College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Science (COAS) at Oregon State University. There, I studied the distribution of thin layers of plankton in relation to physical properties.

I earned my PhD in Marine Sciences in 2007 at the UPC-BarcelonaTech, for my work in the Institute of Marine Sciences of Barcelona (ICM-CSIC), with Drs. Francesc Peters and Cèlia Marrasé. My thesis was about how the variability in forcing factors, and especially in turbulence, affects the dynamics of coastal plankton communities.
