Filipe Bernardo is carrying out a PhD in Biology by the University of the Azores, starting in 2016, within the Island Environmental Risks & Society group of cE3c.
He is conducting the project "Development of a toolbox to biomonitor air quality: towards the sustainability of the Azorean green environment", under the supervision of Patrícia Garcia (cE3c), Cristina Branquinho (cE3c) and Armindo Rodrigues (IVARG).
Filipe Bernardo's PhD project aims are:
Development of a toolbox of sensitive biomarkers in selected macrolichen bioindicator species for biomonitoring air quality in environments subjected to a variety of anthropogenic and geogenic emissions.
