Martina De Freitas Prazeres


PhD graduate


University of Queensland



Martina is originally from Brazil, and completed her BSc in Marine Biology at the Universidade Federal Fluminense,  where she studied the anthropogenic impacts on the coral reefs from Bahia and Pernambuco (Northeast region) using benthic foraminifera as bioindicators. Afterwards, she finished her MSc in Biological Oceanography in 2009 expanding her work to offshore coral communities located in the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago. For her PhD, she is interested in applying symbiont-bearing foraminifera as bioindicators to detect changes through time and space along the Great Barrier Reef, and how we can use them to identify changes driven by climate change and local impacts in coral reef ecosystems.
