Andreia’s main research subjects are seafloor natural gas seepage and gas hydrate systems, focusing on fluid migration trigger mechanisms, gas chimney morphology and hydrate systems development. She holds a PhD degree (2010) in marine geophysics from the Department of Geology at UiT The Arctic University of Norway and a MSc degree in petroleum geology from the IFP School in France.
Her PhD focused on the integration of seismic methods for the study of shallow gas distribution and gas hydrate systems on the passive Norwegian continental margin. She went to New Zealand for a two years post-doctoral fellowship at GNS Science in Wellington, where she investigated fluid flow and gas hydrates systems in active subduction margin settings. She is now back at UiT as a researcher at CAGE.
