His work focuses on the use of technology to support sustainable fisheries management and the reduction of Illegal, unregulated and unreported catch at a global scale. His previous experience includes projects for sustainable fisheries management in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Palau, Solomon Islands, the European Union, and a series of studies at a global scale. Alfredo has more than 10 years of experience thinking of ways to better communicate science and display data in meaningful ways, such as in the platform dataMares, which he a co-founded in 2014.

Alfredo is the first recipient of the Walter Munk Scholar Award by the Marine Technology Society and the Walter Munk Foundation for the Oceans in recognition of his work on using science and technology to improve the state of the ocean. He is also an EthicalGEO Fellow by the American Geographical Society for his work on developing methods to characterize poverty in fishing communities around the world.

In the last 2 years, Alfredo has co-led efforts to include the voices of Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOP) in international ocean sustainability conversations, most notably in the nascent UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
