Juan is a marine scientist, conservationist, photographer, and explorer dedicated to making a difference in the way we protect, understand, and manage our oceans. His work lies at the intersection of data science and marine conservation. He uses emerging earth monitoring technologies - in combination with marine ecology, fisheries science, and economics - to glean insights into our ocean’s socio-ecological systems and inform conservation and fisheries management policies. Juan leads our partnership with National Geographic Society’s Pristine Seas project and works closely with Global Fishing Watch to leverage the power of satellite technology, big data, and machine learning to advance marine conservation, transparently analyze trade-offs between conservation and fisheries, highlight threats to unique marine environments, and identify innovative opportunities for marine conservation. Outside of work, Juan spends his time sailing, diving, playing music, and taking photographs of nature.
