New On Board: Lucas Ramirez
Tell us a bit about the work you’ll be doing at CCMAR.
During the next month’s I’m going to work under the supervision of Dr. David Abecassis and Dr. Karim Erzini in the INFORBIOMARES project. Under this project, I'll check the status and evolution of the MPA "Parque Marinho Luiz Saldanha", in Arrábida, with data collected by experimental fishing campaigns from 2007 until this year.
What were you doing before you joined us?
Two years ago, I arrived to the CCMAR to do my master thesis. A year later, I enrolled in the MINOUW project in this same center. Apparently, I liked it and I'm ready for a third round.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I’m from Puerto Real, a little town next to Cádiz with very similar environments to Faro and the Ria Formosa. In Praia de Faro I enjoy a very similar atmosphere and, on my days off, I flee to the west coast to do some surfing.
