Qué es SIASIM?
Avazando en la modelación isotópica
SIASIM es el primer encuentro nacional de Investigadores y estudiantes de pre y postgrado nacionales que trabajan en la modelación isotópica. Este año, la Universidad Andrés Bello en conjunto con la Universidad de Antofagasta, organizarán este evento. SIASIM es la antesala al congreso mundial de isótopos estables IsoEcol que se efectuará en Chile durante el 2018.
Invitamos a todos aquellos interesados en esta área en participar en este evento enviando sus investigaciones en modalidad poster.
KEY SPEAKER SYMPOSIUM
Dr. Chris Harrod
Professor. Universidad de Antofagasta
I am an ecologist with diverse research interests extending from trophic ecology and ecosystem function to evolutionary ecology. I work on fish and aquatic taxa in systems from the Arctic to the sub-Antarctic including hypersaline salares, marine habitats, estuaries, rivers and lakes. Much of my time is spent developing stable isotope analysis (SIA) as a standard method in ecology, and SIA underpins much of my work. I am currently titular professor at the University of Antofagasta (www.harrodlab.net), where a major work focus is ecosystem function in subtidal kelp forests and the role of cryptic pelagic subsidies to benthivorous fishes.
Dr. Eric T. Schultz
Professor. University of Connecticut
Dr. Schultz received his doctorate at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Schultz then held research appointments at State University of New York at Stony Brook. In 1995 he joined the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut where he is presently a Professor. At UConn he is director of the Vertebrate Biodiversity Collections, and is coordinator of the Joint BS-MS Degree in Biodiversity and Conservation Biology. He teaches undergraduate classes in Biology of Fishes and Physiological Ecology of Animals, and graduate seminars. He is on the Board of Directors of the Southern New England Chapter of the American Fisheries Society. His research includes studies in integrative organismal biology, biological-physical processes affecting transport of estuarine larvae, conservation biology, valuation of ecosystem services, and trophic ecology. He has published 56 peer-reviewed journal articles and 5 book chapters.
