MSc Student; University of Algarve
Since January 2022
I'm David, I come from Portugal and I'm 23 years old. I'm currently taking a masters on Marine Biology in University of Algarve, one of the best marine sciences focused universities in Portugal, with a strong internacional community. I came to Vienna for an internship to complete my master thesis which is focused on fluorescent proteins of corals. The main goals of my research are to find differences in the distribution and abundance of these proteins in the corals tissue and discuss the ecological value that these proteins have. For this study I will use confocal microscopy, a technique that allows the visualization of different fluorescent proteins and their localization in the tissue. This method has already been used in similar studies with promising results. This project will allow a greater understanding on the vertical distribution of corals and identify species that can have better chances of adaptation to ever-changing environmental conditions.
