Introduction

I am a biologist interested in doing research and create new knowledge. I am interested in applied science to modern-world demands by doing research in the marine area, especially about primary production under the current context of global change. I am also very interested in environmental and blue biotechnology: I want to be engaged in the development of potential new solutions to global challenges and the generation of strategies for the sustainable use of marine resources and the application of biotechnological tools.
