Raquel Ruiz Díaz joins FOL to work on climate change vulnerability, policy and adaptation

31/07/2019 -

After a competitive selection process for the assistant position on Adaptation to Climate Change in Marine Systems at Marine Research Center (CIM-Uvigo), Raquel Ruiz has succeeded and has joined FOL team this July 2019.

Raquel just finished the International Master in Marine biological Resources (IMBRSea). She defended her master thesis about “Hindcasting for forecasting. Evaluating the impact of global change in fisheries exploitation” three weeks ago in Brest (France) supervised by Fran Saborido (IIM-Vigo) and by Rosario Domínguez (IEO Vigo).

Raquel already visited the lab last year for her professional practices, where she developed a vulnerability assessment of goose barnacle fishery to climate change. Now, Raquel comes back to Future Oceans Lab, and will work together with the Principal Investigator, Elena Ojea in the ERC project CLOCK – Climate Adaptation to Shifting Stocks among other projects carried out at FOL. She will explore needs for adaptation in different marine systems, such as protected areas or areas under property rights, and the socioeconomic consequences of implementing these adaptation options. Moreover, she will have the chance to collaborate in the scientific reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), specifically in the topic of adaptation of coastal communities to climate change that Elena leads.

We are delighted to have Raquel again at FOL and can’t wait to work with her. Welcome and good luck Raquel!
