Daphne Cuvelier

co-PI

Daphne Cuvelier is co-PI of the Funazores project. She is a postdoctoral researcher at the MARE-Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre/IMAR – Instituto do Mar, based in Horta, Azores. She studies the temporal variation of deep-sea communities in disturbed and undisturbed environments, mostly based on imagery analysis. Working in a variety of deep-sea ecosystems, going from hydrothermal vents, nodule fields and seamounts, her knowledge on the faunal composition and ecology in a variety of settings will be put to good use in the project.
