  • Scientific Area: Marine environmental history; animal history
  • Interests in Environmental History: My research has been focused on the hunting, uses and values of marine mammals in the Atlantic, mainly on whaling history in the early modern period. While centring ecosystems and (non-human) animals in the constructing of historical narratives, my research places whales and other aquatic animals as agents of historical processes, and the practices for their exploitation as stimulus for the construction of littoral spaces and for the wealth of (human) communities through time.
