Iratxe Rubio’s research focuses on adaptation to climate change in international fisheries. As a graduate on Environmental Sciences (University of the Basque Country-UPV/EHU), and an Erasmus Mundus MSc in Marine Environment and Resources, Iratxe has gained deep appreciation and respect for the sea and its enormous biological and environmental value, as well as for being a vital source for humans. She is currently conducting her PhD at the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) (Leioa, Spain), and is enrolled in Do Mar doctorate program from Campus do Mar (Vigo, Spain). For her PhD, Iratxe is interested in approaching adaptation options for international tuna fisheries from a holistic socio-ecological perspective. This multidisciplinary perspective aims to understand how the Basque international tuna fishery is impacted by climate change to seek integral adaptation solutions that can be later on transferred to industrial fisheries around the globe
