I am enthusiastic and hard-working researcher with a broad background from Geology to Marine Sciences, lately specialized in marine biogeochemistry, atmosphere-ocean interaction, microbiology, and plastic pollution. During last years I have had the opportunity to work with scientists from diverse disciplines and from different worldwide institutions. This has allowed me to learn from their expertise, while I am able to substantially contribute in different scientific areas due to my broad view of Earth/Marine and Environmental Sciences. I am keen advocate that citizens are key actors to achieve a better ecological and socio-economical model, that’s the reason why I find dissemination activities of outstanding importance in the area of Environmental Sciences.
I have authored 9 publications in JCR journals, with 3 more articles currently in progress. I am also author of a doctoral dissertation and a chapter of a book. In addition, I have two insight commentaries published on special issues ("NextGen Voices") in the journal Sciences. The full list of publications can be found at my ORCID website. I frequently review manuscripts for the journals Deep Sea Research, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Environmental Science and Technology, FEMS Microbiology Ecology, JGR – Biogeosciences, Marine Pollution Bulletin and Science of the Total Environment.
CCMAR and the University of Algarve received the Corpo Nacional de Escutas of Algarve on a day full of activities, with the aim of raising awareness of the importance of recycling.
“Cientificamente provável” is an outreach project that takes science into schools. This is the second year that the project is running with such a success that we can't accept much more applications.
Isabel Marín Beltrán, a CCMAR researcher, was one of the young researchers invited by Science to write about how she imagined the world in 2040, considering the possible impact of COVID-19.
In the most recent “Alert to Humanity”, a group of scientists led by our researcher Isabel Beltrán highlights the waste of natural resources on a global scale.
