Priscila Goela

Research Collaborator

Priscila’s background is in Chemistry. She then did a Master in water and coastal management and a PhD in Marine and Coastal Management.
Priscila’s research is in the fields of phytoplankton dynamics and water quality in coastal and marine waters in the Southwestern Coast of Portugal. She has focused on the study of the biodiversity of phytoplankton communities using remote sensing and chemo-taxonomic methods, which has resulted in several peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations. She has been involved in several national and international projects in two main areas: European water policy and validation of remote sensing data, supported by recognized national and international institutions such as National Water Institute and European Space Agency.
