Published in 21/8/2015
Barbara Cartagena Matos, master's student in Biology at University of Aveiro (UA), is one of ten Portuguese scientists who, during the year 2015/2016, will be funded by the US to continue its research projects in some of the most prestigious universities and research centers in the United States, under the program of scholarships awarded annually by the Fulbright Commission.
She had already studied Crickets in Finland, woolly monkeys in the Amazon, dolphins in Rio de Janeiro, and whales in the Atlantic, and now she cannot wait for 2016 to go to Alaska to study the eating habits of sea otters in the Sitka area. From April to September the biologist will be at the "most wonderful and unique natural laboratory" that the planet has available to scientists in Nature.
With a duration of between four to nine months, Fulbright Research scholarships intended to researchers from all fields of knowledge, provided they are graduated, have good knowledge of English and a project accepted by the host institution.
