New Position: Lélia Matos
Tell us a bit about the work you are/will be doing at CCMAR.
I’ll be working for the MIT-Portugal project CoralOx that will explore chromium isotopes from cold-water corals as a new proxy for suboxic ocean conditions.
What were you doing before you joined us?
Previously, I worked as a Lab Technician of the EMSO project at the new clean lab housed at the IPMA-Algés Campus. I helped to set and develop the needed procedures to perform trace element analyses on carbonate organisms on an ICP-MS device.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Being the mother of two, leisure times have adapted to family hikes and small bike trips or beach sand building in the summer. We take family and friends to picnics. I also love music, singing and playing sax, so occasionally I join with friends for a jam.
