My name is Andrea Burfeid Castellanos. I am originally from Spain, but I am currently working part-time as a Biological Technical Assistant in Germany, at the Alfred-Wegener Institute. My background is in (freshwater benthic) diatom diversity and ecology, which were themes in my PhD thesis. In parallel to my current work, I am pursuing funding for several diatom themed projects: based on temporary rivers (benthic) and Antarctic oceans (planktonic and epiphytic). I am looking forward to using your platform for information on the best fitting funding.
I also would like to introduce Young ISDR (https://bit.ly/2rAgRNA), a ECR group of the International Society of Diatom Research for which I am an elected representative. @Admin I would love to link our (flimsy) funding page to your very professional website, and try to introduce people to your community, if it is allright with you. Maybe creating a bridge between the two organizations, who knows.
Thank you so much for the great work on this website! It is a clearly necessary tool for ECRs of the 21st century.
Welcome to ECRcentral!
