I received a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Lisbon (Faculty of Sciences) in 2012. I´ve been Post-Doc Researcher funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) from 2015 to 2018, and a member of the Applied Ecology Research Group, CENA/ESALQ/São Paulo University and collaborator of the Conservation Ecology research group of cE3c. I am also a member of the IUCN SSC Otter Specialist Group.
I am currently an Invited Researcher Assistant at Institute of Mediterranean Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (ICAAM).
My main interests are mammalian ecology and conservation mostly linked with aquatic environments. I´ve been working on the influence of anthropic environments in the ecology and adaptation of semi-aquatic mammals, especially with otter species, and their prey, antimicrobial resistance dissemination effects in wildlife, and conservation of aquatic environments especially ponds and reservoirs. I am also interested in environmental policy and impact assessment regarding biodiversity and conservation.
I also participated and collaborated in several monitoring and environmental impact projects and LIFE projects.
