Ana I. Sousa is an Assistant Researcher (CEECIndividual: CEECIND/00962/2017, FCT) at CESAM-Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies, Department of Biology, University of Aveiro (Portugal). She graduated in Biology (2003) and MSc in Ecology (2005) from Univ. of Coimbra (Portugal), and completed a PhD in Biology (Ecology) (2010) from University of Lisbon (Portugal). For one year, she worked in science management (intellectual property) as a Post-Doc at Technology Transfer Office from Univ. Coimbra. In 2012, she moved to University of Aveiro (CESAM) starting a Post-Doc research grant (FCT), in collaboration with Southern Denmark University, SDU (DK). From 2012 to 2018, she was awarded with 2 Post-Doc FCT grants, ceased to start a Research contract (2019) awarded by FCT. The guiding thread of her research career has been the wetlands functioning and resilience against multiple threats. She has been focused on salt marsh and seagrass meadows resilience to climate and other changes, with special attention on the impacts on ecosystem services (e.g. Blue Carbon stock). She has worked on coastal wetlands Blue C assessment, nutrient dynamics and long-term spatio-temporal changes due to climate and human-driven threats, and on seagrass restoration programs (PT and DK). AISousa established several collaborations and worked at 6 highly ranked research units (MARE, Univ. Coimbra & Univ. Lisboa; Aarhus University, DK; University of Maryland - USA; CESAM, UA; SDU - DK). In 2014 she worked as a Pos-Doc at SDU (DK) (6 months) and in 2009 she did a 3-months internship at Univ. Maryland (USA). Since 2003, AISousa has (co)authored 29 ISI papers (13 as leading and/or corresponding author; 17 since 2017, last 5 years); 7 book chapters; 1 book; and 2 technical reports. She has published with several international teams and contributed to more than 50 presentations at international/national conferences. She has achieved an h-index of 15, with a total of 1040 citations. She has been (co-) supervising students and research fellows at Univ. Aveiro (2 Pos-Docs, 1 PhD student, 5MSc, 7BSc) and has been the main arguer at 1 PhD defense (Indonesia), and 6 MSc defenses (Portugal). She has participated in over 20 R&D projects (International and National; as PI and team member) focused on wetland ecology and conservation, biodiversity and coastal zone management. She is co-Coordinator of the project BioPradaRia (MAR-01.04.02-FEAMP-0020)-Restoration, management and conservation of biodiversity and biological resources associated with seagrass ecosystems of Ria de Aveiro (2018-2022). She also coordinated the projects MARSH-C-LEVEL and C-GRASS (CNRS/OHMI), targeting salt marshes and seagrass meadows spatio-temporal changes due to environmental changes and Blue Carbon storage. AISousa is participating in different International Initiatives (TeaComposition Initiative; TeaComposition H2O Initiative; iSBio Consortium (SoilTeaBag), as Univ. Aveiro site coordinator, involving hundreds of researchers, institutions and study sites across the world. Since 2020, she is Seagrass Bioregional co-Leader of the IUCN Seagrass Species Specialist Group and Red List Authority, and is Review Editor for Frontiers in Marine Science (Marine Ecosystem Ecology). In addition, she is participating in international scientific networks performing long-term research and monitoring (LTER-Portugal (Long-Term Ecosystem Research), LTER-Europe & ILTER).
