Monalisa got her bachelor and masters´ degree at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, where she is currently a PhD candidate. Her research approaches the management potential of coastal fishing villages, through analyses of their socio-ecological vulnerability and conflict over the use of ecosystem services. she is interested in Human Ecology, conservation and management of fishing resources, sustainability of human communities, co-management and spatial resilience.
has a background in Biology, from the University of Pernambuco, a
master's degree from the Rural Federal University of Pernambuco. She
is currently a PhD student in Ecology at the Federal University of
Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN). Her thesis is about understanding
resource use by small communities and its implications for
conservation. Specifically, she is trying to understand such issues
using the lens of socio-ecological resilience and co-management to
see how well communities living in the Brazilian semi-arid would
respond to the establishment of parks.
has a background in Biology and a master's degree in Ecology at the
National Institute of Amazon Researches (INPA). She is currently a
PhD student in Ecology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do
Norte (UFRN). Her thesis is about fisheries co-management in the
Amazon region, joining ecological, social and economic aspects.
Júlia has a degree in Biology and a master´s degree in Ecology at the National Institute of Amazon Research, where she studied fish paternity. She is currently a PhD student at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte. In her thesis she will integrate fishers´ knowledge and scientific occurrence data to build distribution and abundance models for four marine fishes of economic interest for Brazil.
a undergrad in Biological Sciences and a Master degree in Development
and Environment. During two years, after the undergrad, works in a
Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) specialized in research and
protection of sea turtles (TAMAR Project), with environmental
education and writing reports. Currently she is an analyst at
Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program and she is a PhD student in the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte. Ludmila is interested in human ecology, fisher's
ecological knowledge, management and sustainable fisheries.
Natalia got her bachelor and masters´ degree in Ecology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, where she is currently a PhD student in Ecology as well. Her masters research approached parrotfish fishery, in which the modeling of sensitive parrotfish habitats and gear selectivity was addressed. Currently, her thesis associates habitat preferences, demography and molecular tools aiming to assess the vulnerability of the endemic and endangered Greenbeak parrotfish (Scarus trispinosus), with the goal of subsidizing actions for the species conservation.
got her bachelor in Forest Engineering at Rural Federal University
Rural of Rio de Janeiro, master degree Tropical Forest Sciences at
National Institute of Amazon Researches (INPA) in Manaus and PhD at
Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, supervised by Adriana
Carvalho. Currently she is a postdoctoral fellow interested in landscape
conservation and ecology. Her research is focused on the relationship
between ecosystem services and biodiversity on a local and landscape
scales. She is also interested on how land use affects plant
biodiversity and services provision as well as their economic values. Nádia Selene ZamboniNádia concluded her bachelor in Biology at National University of Cordoba, Argentine, got her master degree in Environment and Human Health at Federal University of Pernambuco and is currently a PhD candidate in the Ecology Program at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte. Her PhD focuses on the economic valuation of ecosystem services of coastal zones under different degrees of environmental vulnerability and how climate change would affect the more sensitive environments as well as local dwellers, by changing economic provision through ecosystem services changing/decreasing. Geovanine Araújo Alves Geovaninne has a background in Biology at Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte and she is pursuing master degree in Development and Environment. Her goal is to designing integrated bioeconomic model and fisheries value chain to understand how market demand and economic incentives influences the harvest upon vulnerable coral reef species.
