Researcher Claudia Lindim has been awarded a stipend of 85000 SEK (€9000) by The King Carl XVI 50-year Foundation for Science, Technology and Environment.
“ I am very happy to receive this award which will allow me contribute to improving the environment in the Baltic region,” says Claudia Lindim.
Claudia Lindim, who is originally from Portugal, is a surface water quality modeller. She has developed and applied models to rivers, lakes, reservoirs, salt marshes, oceans and sediments worldwide. Her work focuses on providing scientific insight and management guidance on contamination by inorganic (eutrophication and nutrients, heavy metals) and organic substances. She has worked in multiple EU projects and projects with national authorities and regulatory bodies. Her current research interests include global biogeochemical cycles, climate change impacts in waterbodies and fate & transport of organic contaminants. She is currently developing modelling tools to simulate fate & transport of emerging contaminants and their bioaccumulation in European river basins.
The Foundation supports research, technical development and business ideas that promote a sustainable use of natural resources and conservation of biodiversity.The award ceremony will take place on 31 May 2016 at the Royal Palace in central Stockholm.
