Claudia is a biologist, having graduated from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). She holds a master’s degree in ecology also from the UFRJ and a doctorate degree in biological oceanography from the University of São Paulo (USP). Claudia is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Oceanographic Institute of USP.
Oceanography came into her life when she discovered that ocean currents and tides have a major influence on marine life, more specifically on fish and their larvae. For Claudia, studying ichthyoplankton is a way to integrate zoology, ecology and oceanography.
Claudia loves to cook, taste new flavors, and socialize with friends around the table, after all food is culture. She enjoys walking through different places, going out dancing, listening to good music and chatting with everyone, not just Neptune.
She is an editor at the blog and among the people responsible for correcting posts, from content to grammar.
