Pedro Quijon

Biography

Title: Associate Professor

Education: Ph.D., Marine Biology, Memorial University; MSc, Zoology; BSc, Biology, Universidad Austral de Chile.

Dr Quijon researches estuarine and marine benthic habitats, with a focus on predator-prey interactions, animal-sediment relationships, marine biodiversity, and invasive species. His research may lead to a better understanding of the natural history of our coastal habitats and the impact of different sources of disturbance on these habitats.

He moved to Biology-UPEI in September 2005, after doing postdoctoral research at the Institute of Marine & Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University (New Brunswick, New Jersey). Previously, he graduated with a Ph.D. in marine biology from Memorial University (St. John’s, Newfoundland) and with MSc (zoology) and BSc (biology) degrees from Universidad Austral de Chile (Valdivia-Chile).

Since January 2010, Dr Quijon is the Faculty of Science’s Coordinator of Graduate Studies. If you want to know more about Graduate Programs, please visit science.upei.ca/graduatestudies.
