Raquel Mendonça

  Bachelor and license degree in Biological Sciences and a masters degree, both taken at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora (UFJF).

   I have also a phD in Ecology taken at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), during which of I was in Netherlands, at the University of Wageningen.

   My post-doctorate was at the University of Nijmegen (Netherlands). I have competences in several areas, mainly in ecology and aquatic biochemistry, especially focused studies for greenhouse gas balance in fresh water ecosystem.

   I’ve worked in several projects related to gas emission in reservoir and natural lakes, and currently studied the synergic effect of increasing eutrophication and global warming for carbon emissions and storage in aquatic ecosystems.

   Recently, I’m developping a technique to quantify the carbon storage in reservoirs used for hydroelectric plants, and mastering the stable isotope technique applied to ecological studies.
