Mr Guilherme A. Bortolotto
University of St Andrews
My PhD project is focused on undertanding the impacts of human activities on the distribution of humpback whales in the coast of Brazil. During my master's degree, I have used Distance Sampling methods to estimate the abundance of the same population in the area. With a Bachelor's degree in veterinary medicine, I have experience on aquatic fauna strandings and wild animal rehabilitation.
My studies are currently funded by CNPq (Brazilian federal government) through the Science Without Borders scholarships programme.
