TARA OCEAN EXPEDITION

ONBOARD REPORTER – MULTIMEDIA JOURNALIST

I am documenting the new scientific expedition TARA MICROBIOMES. I was aboard the schooner for the first scientific leg of the mission in Patagonia in Chile, for the Brazilian leg, from Macapa to Salvador de Bahia, then in January 2022 I was back for the Antarctica leg. The next challenge will be from South Africa to Angola.

My mission is to document the work of scientists and seamen while they are sampling the ocean. This new expedition aims to better understand planktonic life and the impact of global warming and plastic pollution on these microscopic organisms.

I produce content (Photo, Video, and Podcast) for social media and 4K bank images for international TV media.
