Raquel joins us from the University of Ghent where she is studying the International Master in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea). During her stay she will carry out her master thesis Disentangling the impact of environment and fishing in Flemish Cap Atlantic cod dynamics under the supervision of Fran Saborido and our colleague form IEO Rosario Domínguez.
She brings a rich experience in the fields of applied marine ecology and of fisheries science. She has a multidisciplinary profile, having worked on different topics such as latitudinal patterns in the life-history traits of deep sea crustaceans in the Macaronesia, the introduction of invasive species to the Canary Islands through oil platforms and, more recently, assessing the vulnerability of TURF managed in Galician small scale fisheries under climate change effects. She holds a BS in Marine Science from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (2015) with a specialization in Marine Resources Management.
