Biodiversity Coastal ecosystems Rhizosphere Animal-plant interactions Fungi-plant interactions

I received a Ph.D. in Biosciences, with specialization in Ecology from the University of Coimbra in 2018.My research focuses on biodiversity and interactions among organisms. Over the past years I studied the impact of human pressure on plant biodiversity in tropical environment, namely that of management practices on pasture land and logged forests on tree and shrub biodiversity. Lately my research focused on the interactions of dioecious plants with nematodes and fungi at the rhizosphere level, in the Atlantic coasts of Portugal and Canada.

Presently, I am a post-doctoral grant holder within the project “PORBIOTA, Portuguese E-Infrastructure for Information and Research on Biodiversity”, under the supervision of Margarida Santos-Reis and Jorge Palmeirim. Aiming to develop a monitoring program able to provide indicators, detect changes and highlight trends in biodiversity at a national level, PORBIOTA also seeks to integrate existing data and provide policy-oriented indicators to the administration, the scientific community and the society.
