Andressa Cristina Ramaglia da Mota graduated in Marine Biology in 2015 and proceeded to specialize in aquaculture. She has always been interested in how climate change and pollutions affect the marine organisms and has developed various studies on the topic in her academic career. One of them concerns how ocean acidification and salinity variation affect species such as the whiteleg shrimp and it is the topic of the next Low Trophic Life webinar. Her research and results could help us to better understand the consequences of an existing problem that we urgently need to resolve.


Andressa Cristina Ramaglia da Mota is a PhD student at CAUNEST – Centre of Aquaculture at São Paulo State University (Universidade Estadual Paulista “Júlio de Mesquita Filho”) in Brazil. Andressa has always been in love with nature and in 2015 she graduated in Marine Biology. In 2016 she took her master’s degree in aquatic biodiversity before moving on to a PhD in aquaculture. Throughout her academic life, she has worked with the effect of climate change and pollution on marine organisms.
