Dr. Andreea Uta is from Romania and she is currently a member of the academic staff of IGJEO and lecturer in Micropaleontology and Historical Geology at Polytechnic University of Tirana, Faculty of Geology and Mining. She completed her bachelor's and master's studies in the fields of micropaleontology and sedimentary basins at “Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania”. In 2021 she received the PhD degree with the topic: “Micropaleontology, microfacies and paleoenvironments of Lower Cretaceous carbonate” deposits of Mirdita zone and their relationships with the subjacent ophiolites” at Polytechnic University of Tirana, Faculty of Geology and Mining. Throughout her career she specializes among others in Shelf micropaleontology, Sequence stratigraphy of carbonate environments and Paleoclimatology at “Joseph Fourrier University, Grenoble, "Institute des Science de la Terre", France and in Reefal Carbonates at “Jagellonian University”, Cracow, Poland and gained diverse field experience in Romania, Crimea, France, Poland, Kosovo and Albania. Actually, her main research interests deal with: -Carbonate shelf micropaleontology: calcareous algae, foraminifera, incerta sedis and callpionellids -Plankton biostratigraphy -Invertebrate paleontology -Biostratigraphy and Sequence Stratigraphy of Shallow Marine Carbonate Environments -Carbonate petrology and microfacies analysis -Paleoecology and Paleoenvironmental analysis of sedimentary deposits -Geoarcheology/Petroarcheometry. Actually, she’s working on the Lower Cretaceous carbonate deposits from Mirdita zone with focus on the microfauna, microfacies, paleoenvironments and their relationships with the associate ophiolites. She is author and co-author of various scientific papers and oral presentations whose titles and content can be consulted in my resume or on www.researchgate.com
