Birthplace: Brazil

Both MSc. (1995) and PhD. (2004) in Biological Oceanography by the University of São Paulo, with several specialization courses in Fisheries and Multispecies Modelling (i.e. Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia (Canadá), DIFRES/University of Copenhagen (Dinamarca), Escuela Nacional de Pesca (Argentina), Instituto Español de Oceanografia, Universidad de Gran Canaria (España), Instituto Politécnico Nacional (México)). Presently, Professor at the Instituto Oceanográfico of the University of São Paulo, and supervisor of the Graduate Program on Biological Oceanography. During 10 years served as a fisheries research scientist at the Instituto de Pesca, where now collaborates advising graduate students. Her experience focused on Fisheries Sciences and Oceanography, with emphasis in Marine Systems, while research topics included: Eeosystem and fishery stocks modelling; energy transfers in marine ecosystems; population dynamics; human dimension of fisheries; small-scale fisheries; ethnoecology; Fisheries Management; climate change impacts on fisheries; Cephalopods; Governance. Present research interests aim the consolidation of innovative analysis and techniques to the management and conservartion of fishery resources, with particular emphasis to Ecosystem Approaches to Fisheries (EAF), whose results have been shown in national and international programs, events, journals and books. Presently, she is a group leader and participate of research, teaching, extension and advising activities, being the Head of the Fisheries Ecosystems Laboratory (LabPesq), and responsible of permanent courses on "Sustainable Fisheries", "Fishery Biology", "Sustainable Fishery Systems", and "Fisheries Oceanography" at IO-USP. In POLI-USP, lectures "Economics of Marine Natural Resources" jointly with U/Tokyo. She contributes ad-hoc in international scientific journals with selective editorial policy and in national and international agencies as evaluator. She also serves in international scientific steering committees (IMBER, TBTI, GULLS/Belmont Forum, FAO), and as a guest editor, organized a special issue in the journal Maritime Studies (Springer). She is currently associate editor of the journals "Fisheries Oceanography (Wiley)" and "Brazilian Journal of Oceanography". She was an official member of the Brazilian delegation at the UN Oceans Conference in 2017 (NY), as advisor. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

Biota-FAPESP addresses marine and coastal environments

Published in July 08, 2014 - Revista Pesquisa FAPESP - The second to last meeting of the Biota-FAPESP Conference Cycle addressed marine and coastal environments: areas composed of beaches, rocky intertidal zones, dunes and cliffs extended over a coastal strip of about 4,5 million square kilometers (km²), from Cape Orange, in Amapá State, to the unassuming Chuí Creek, on the Southern tip of Rio Grande do Sul. Little known, these environments harbor a great diversity of species. It is estimated that 2,2 million marine species exist, from which only 9% have been described. “This means that we ignore more than 90% of our coastal environments’ biodiversity”, said USP’s biologist Mariana Cabral de Oliveira, one of the invited speakers. [...] To know more about the potential of this underwater universe, composed of extremely rich and complex ecosystems, watch the video with excerpts of the talks, which also featured biologist Maria de los Angeles Gasalla and chemist Roberto Berlinck, both from USP.
