André is mainly interested in using multi-disciplinary data to suggest potential solutions for biodiversity conservation. His background has a special emphasis on the ecology, biogeography and conservation genetics of mammals from Europe, Africa and Asia. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the Department of Ecology and Genetics, Uppsala University, Sweden. His doctoral project, focused on terrestrial mammals of the Indian subcontinent, aims to contribute for the adaption of spatial conservation strategies, such as protected areas, to global environmental change. He is conducting the project under the supervision of Prof. Mats Bjorklund (Uppsala University), Prof. Carlos Fernandes (CE3C) and Dr. Shomita Mukherjee (SACON – Sálim Ali Centre for Ornithology and Natural History, India). To carry out his project, André collaborates with CE3C and was a visiting student at SACON and NCBS (National Centre for Biological Sciences, India).
