A biologist from the Federal University of Pará (UFPA), Alexya is currently pursuing a master's degree in the Postgraduate Program in Environmental Biology.
She does research studying the behavior of juvenile estuarine fish that resemble floating plant debris, both in form and in behavior.
When not doing research, Alexya escapes to a world of painting and doodles. One of the things she loves most is being able to combine her two passions, biology and art.
Alexya is an illustrator for Chat with Neptune.
