João Melo

I loved every single person it this lab, their minds, their heart and of course their individuality. I learned a lot about ocean noise pollution, and that awareness urged me to act against it.

Diana Vieira

several results have travelled the world.

One is the documentary produced about

local communities in Aveiro facing climate change.
