Thaise Ricardo de Freitas
Over the past few years, I have been working with benthic foraminiferal ecology and paleoecology, with an emphasis on methods for biomass estimation and carbon flux in the marine environment. Currently studying the effects of climate change and ice retreat on foraminiferal assemblages and carbon uptake in the Arctic Ocean.
