Elvira Ramos has a degree in Environmental Sciences and an Official Master’s Degree in Environmental Management of Water Systems. She is a PhD from the Universidad de Cantabria since 2015. As part of this thesis, she has made a classification of coastal waters along the NE Atlantic, that has been used as a basis for the exercise of intercalibration within the Water Framework Directive (WFD, 2000/60/EC). Within the mobility program associated with the Predoctoral Scholarship of the Universidad de Cantabria, in 2011 she made a research stay at the Instituto do Mar – IMAR in Coimbra (Portugal), where she focused into the analysis of coastal communities.
Her lines of research are focused on the study of marine biological communities, especially macroalgae, highlighting the analysis of their distribution (monitoring and mapping) in relation to meteo-oceanographic characteristics. She has also developed different tasks in the field of the management of natural areas, ecosystem services and climate change risk.
