Hey everyone, my name is Rodrigo Alves. I started my Post Master position in the ATTO project in May of 2019. I’m a biologist and graduated from the Federal University of Pampa (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil). During my studies, I worked with the effect of climate change on plant communities in Antarctica and participated in three Antarctic expeditions. Now, I have the chance to learn more about those effects in the Amazon rainforest.
I’m currently a member of the Group of Bettina Weber at the Max-Planck-Institut für Chemie but I’m stationed in Brazil. We work with cryptogamic communities and their role in bioaerosol and trace gas cycling in the tropical rainforest.
