Lidia Lins Pereira

Lidia Lins is a postdoctoral researcher working on global trends of species distribution in the deep sea. With the focus on ecology dynamics, she investigates how abiotic factors could influence the benthic environment and what might causes shifts in species distribution. Using an interdisciplinary approach, she is interested to discover why some species are successful in the deep sea and which functions they provide to this ecosystem.
