Emilio Garcia-Robledo is a biological oceanographer at the Department of Biology of the University of Cadiz, Spain. His research focuses on the interrelationship between microbial processes and the distribution of key compounds in aquatic environments. Currently, his research focuses on the control of oxygen on the distribution and activity of microorganisms at the interfaces of oxygen minimum zones. His participation in the development of high-resolution oxygen sensors allows him to use these sensors to characterize the distribution of oxygen in oxygen-depleted zones and to quantify aerobic and anaerobic microbial processes under oxygen-limiting conditions.

Emilio received his B.Sc and M.Sc in Marine Sciences from the University of Cadiz, Spain. He spent several years in the Microbiology section of the University of Aarhus, Denmark, working in different topics related to the use of microsensors for the study of microbiology. Emilio received a reincorporation grant for coming back to Spain and then the Ramon y Cajal Fellowship in 2020, being now part of the Department of Biology of the University of Cadiz.
