Beans Cristina
PhD researcher


Cristina Beans is currently working towards obtaining her PhD in Oceanography at the University of Liège. The main objectives of her thesis are to study the diversity of the microplankton present in the coastal Antarctic waters, in particular the region between the Astrolabe and Mertz Glaciers in East Antarctica, as well as the factors contributing to their distribution and abundance (such as physico-chemical water conditions or presence of predators). Samples for this work were obtained in January - February of 2004 and 2005 during oceanographic campaigns onboard the RV Astrolabe in Terre Adélie, while working in close collaboration with the French ICOTA Programme (Ichthyologie Côtière en Terre Adélie, Prof. Philippe Koubbi from the Université du Littoral-Côte d’Opale).
