ANA PAYO PAYO
PhD Candidate Biodiversity, IMEDEA-CSIC-UIB/ Barcelona University
Ana is a passionate scientist with a particular interest in population ecology. She is about to defend her PhD on the effects of environmental variability and perturbations on seabirds population dynamics. She believes that addressing the challenge of empowering women and engaging people in science has never been more urgent in order to avoid loss of scientific talent and to ensure future innovation capability, excellence and competitiveness. That’s why she invests most of her free time doing scientific outreach (scientific stand-up comedy shows) with Big Van.
