Mariana Barros joins FOL for a two-month research stay
We are really happy to host Mariana Barros Dunning in FOL for a 2-month research stay. Mariana joins us from Ghent University, Belgium, where she is studying her International Masters’ in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea). During her stay, she will learn about the climate impact assessment focus on how acidification could work as a key driver, affecting Galician coastal ecosystems and consequently the artisanal fisheries through analysis of social-ecological risk.
Mariana brings rich experience in the fields of applied marine ecology and social science. She has participated in different projects, such as the marking and recapture of invertebrates in Peru. Previously, she worked with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) on projects with artisanal fishermen in Peru. These groups of fishermen have internal measures and try to work sustainably over time, so she helped with training and monitoring. In addition, she worked with “La Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental,” helping with the formalization of another group of fishermen in the north of Peru. In addition, she has participated in volunteer work with marine turtles and whale sharks. She holds a BS in Marine Biology from “La Universidad Cientifica del Sur”, Peru (2018).
We are pleased to work with her. Welcome and good luck Mariana!
