Laura studied her B.Sc. in Environmental Biology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. During her senior year she transferred to FIU and studied Marine Sciences while volunteering in the Marine Community Ecology Lab. She is currently a student in the Predator Ecology and Conservation Lab working with Dr. Demian Chapman. Her research focuses on the conservation biology of sharks, specifically on the level of pollutants that can be found in different shark tissues and how this varies with species, trophic level, and region of origin.
