Eva Cacabelos is an external collaborator at MARE – Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre – Regional Agency for the Development of Research Technology and Innovation (ARDITI). Eva is a researcher with more than 20 years of experience conducting research in marine benthic communities, having considerable expertise on marine invasion processes, biotic interactions and effects of stressors such as coastal urbanization or climate change on marine coastal communities. While contributing to advance in understanding the effects of coastal urbanization, biological invasions or climate change on littoral ecosystems, she acquired wide experience in conducting manipulative lab and field experiments. 

Eva has a PhD degree in Marine Sciences (University of Vigo, Spain). While focusing her research on marine benthic communities, she published over 45 publications and participated in national and international research projects at several institutions, namely NIOO-KNAW, in the Netherlands, CIIMAR-Porto in Portugal, University of Vigo or cE3c-Island Aquatic Ecology in the Azores.
