In the following year she was accepted into a master course in Marine Sciences at the same faculty. She is currently a finalist, concluding her master thesis with a research on nannoplankton and sedimentology carried out at the Tejo Estuary (Lisbon, Portugal).
She intends to continue her research on the subject always with a focus on nannofossil sedimentary dynamics.
Rita's main research interests are micropaleontology (nannofossils), sedimentary dynamics, marine mineral resources and microplastics in sediments.
In Paleontology, Rita's main attention goes to microfossils (nannofossils in particular) but she considers a future research interest in other fossil groups, a definite possibility.
