The Landscape Ecology Lab of the Berlin Humboldt University (Germany), the Department of Biology of the University of Antwerp (Belgium), theInstitute for Environmental Genomics of the Okhlahoma University (EEUU) and theSmithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Panama) are the destination of 4 postdoctoral researchers from CREAF who will carry out research stays as part of the center’s program Visitors & Sabbaticals of the center. The mobility proposal also includes the visit to CREAF of 4 researchers from INRAe and the Research Institute for Development (both from France) and the universities of California Davis and Colorado (both from the United States).
From CREAF, postdoctoral researcher Felipe Siqueira Campos will work closely with researcher Dagmar Haase from the Landscape Ecology Lab of the Humboldt University of Berlin; the postdoctoral researcher Mukund Palat Rao will collaborate directly with researchers Ivan Janssens and Sara Vicca from the University of Antwerp; postdoctoral researcher Stefania Mattana will travel to the University of Oklahoma to conduct joint research with Jizhong Zhou from the Institute for Environmental Genomics, while postdoctoral researcher Josep Barba Ferrer will spend a stay at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute to strengthen scientific links with researcher Joseph Wright.
The visits to CREAF will include a stay by researcher Nicolas Martin-StPaul from INRAe to get involved in research with his counterparts Miquel De Cáceres and Maurizio Mencuccini. Likewise, Milagros Rodriguez-CatonProject Scientist from the University of California Davis, will share projects and day-to-day life with researcher Iolanda Filella; while Kasia Ziemińska, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow linked to the Research Institute for Development (France), will carry out a research stay at CREAF with researchers Maurizio Mencuccini, Jordi Martínez Vilalta and Oliver Binks. The last visit of this second resolution of the mobility program includes the period that the researcher Anping Chen from the University of Colorado will get to know in depth the research promoted by CREAF and CSIC researcher Josep Peñuelas.
