Current research

I am currently working as an employee in the Metaxas lab. I am assisting Sarah de Mendonça with her research on deep sea benthic megafauna, specifically in the Laurentian Channel MPA. My main roles include searching for relevant oceanographic datasets regarding the MPA and performing a literature review on spatial patterns on deep sea benthic megafauna.
