Congratulations to Martin Beal, who is now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Lisbon! He is compiling tracking and ringing data for several species of coastal waterbirds within the East Atlantic Flyway to map and quantify the connectivity of wetlands sites throughout migration. A great opportunity for applying the skills Martin developed during his PhD on identifying Marine Key Biodiversity Areas using tracking data, which was done in collaboration between ISPA – Instituto Universitário (supervisor: Paulo Catry) and BirdLife International (Maria Dias). Martin is now based at the Center for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes (cE3c) of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, supervised by Maria Dias and José Álves.
We wish Martin all the best in his in his personal and professional life!
