Raquel Ruiz Díaz
Raquel Ruiz joined University of Vigo in July 2019 as a research assistant to work on adaptation of coastal communities to climate change within the framework of the ERC CLOCK project. Raquel hold a degree in Marine science from University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and has just completed the International Master in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea), in which she had the opportunity to study in several recognized institutions such us Ghent University (Belgium) or Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (Ireland), among others. She brings experience in the field of fisheries management, having working for more than 2 years in the Applied marine ecology and fisheries group of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Moreover, as part of her master, she did an internship at FOL, where she learnt about socio-ecological systems and to conduct vulnerability assessments. Raquel is highly interested in the effect that climate change has in marine organisms, since changes in their distributional range to changes in their metabolism and physiology, and how these modifications affects stocks productivity and consequently, fishing communities.
