Dr. Yamirka Rojas-Agramonte, Cuba
Yamirka Rojas-Agramonte from Cuba is carrying out research at the University of Mainz. The question that interests her: how did Cuba and the other Caribbean islands come into existence? What role did tectonic plates play in the process? She says that research on this topic is in its early stages back in her homeland. She's hoping that in future her work will play an important role in recovering mineral resources from the ground.
