Dimas Gianuca


I am a PhD student within the Biosciences department working under the supervision of Dr Steve Votier and Professor Stuart Townley. My PhD thesis focuses on how climate and fisheries influence the demography of Giant Petrels (large pelagic seabirds) nesting on Bird Island, South Georgia, Antarctic. My research is developed through a partnership with Dr Richard Phillips, from the British Antarctic Survey, who provided the long term dataset; and my PhD scholarship is funded by the Brazilian government through the Science Without Borders programme.
