We are delighted to announce that our two-year postdoctoral position in shellfish ecophysiology and numerical ecology has been filled. We would like to welcome to the TAPAS team Dr. Stephanie Palmer from Canada. Stephanie completed her PhD in physical geography at the University of Leicester (UK), and as a Marie Curie Early Stage Research Fellow in Hungary, she developed algal bloom monitoring program for Lake Balaton. Stephanie also has expertise in satellite data time-series analysis applied to phenology indicators for phytoplankton. Stephanie will be involved in several work packages within the TAPAS project coupling earth observation data with bivalve growth models.
