Carla S S Gouveia
University of Madeira, Portugal
Carla S S Gouveia is an MSc in Applied Biochemistry and a PhD Student in Biological Sciences. One of the main objectives of her PhD research project is to increase the threshold information about the drought stress adaptability conditions of two extreme important worldwide crops: sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) and taro (Colocasia esculenta), by the creation of a prediction model about their mechanisms of biomass allocation, adaptation and response to water stress. She also worked in the regional sweet potato flour production for the bakery industry, with the biochemical characterization and quality parameters. Since then, she has worked with several crops as a Researcher at the ISOPlexis Genebank of Madeira University, performing the nutritional and technological evaluation of agriculture and agri-food genetic resources, including the crops considered for her PhD project.
