Marc obtained a BSc in Marine Science from the University of Cadiz. During 2012-2014 he completed a MSc in Oceanography by the Marine Science Institute (ICM) – Spanish Research Council (CSIC) in Barcelona and in Las Palmas de Gran Canarias University (ULPGC) (Spain).
His MSc 2012-2013 thesis was conducted with the Oceanography and Climate Change Institute (IOCAG) – Research Group GEOGAR (Regional and Aplicated Geology) in University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), Spain. The main objective of this research was focused on the geologic characterization and the geodiversity of the three subtidal shallows in the Confital Bay, Gran Canaria Island. He additionally collaborated on a PhD project at the Botany and Plant Science School of Natural Sciences at Ryan Institute, National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG), Republic of Ireland. The project was aimed at following seasonal changes in three seagrass meadows.
He is currently a Ph.D. student at the Graduate Program in Coastal Oceanography, Autonomous University of Baja California, Mexico. The main objective of his research is to integrate a regional geological framework of the Carmen basin to help characterize lithospheric opening processes, as well as understand crustal deformation, and the magmatism associated with the formation of geothermal fluids. His research approach will be carried out using 2D multi-channel seismic reflection data collected in 2006 throughout the Carmen, Cerralvo, La Paz, and Pescadero basin system, on onboard the O.V. Francisco de Ulloa, property of the Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE), in partnership with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, California.
