Erick Manuel García Troche, egresado del Recinto Universitario de Mayagüez (RUM) de la Universidad de Puerto Rico (UPR), logró compartir los hallazgos de su investigación sobre la Bahía Bioluminiscente de La Parguera a través de la publicación de su artículo en la prestigiosa revista científica PLOS ONE, una plataforma de acceso abierto que busca empoderar a los investigadores para que den a conocer su trabajo de forma inmediata en vías de impulsar el progreso de la ciencia.

Graduado de bachillerato en Química y la secuencia curricular en Meteorología, en 2014, así como la maestría en Ciencias Marinas en Oceanografía Química, durante el 2020, ambos grados del RUM, el científico reiteró la inmensa satisfacción que le brinda esta meta alcanzada en su carrera.
