Environmental changes Lichens Functional diversity Ecological indicators

I started my academic career with a graduation in Biology in 2015, by the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra.  In 2015 I moved to the University of Lisbon to enter a master degree in Ecology and Environmental Management. My thesis “Ecological indicators of the effects of multiple farming activities in a Mediterranean High Nature Value Farmland” was developed in the LTsER-Montado, under the supervision of Doctor Paula Matos, Doctor Mário Boieiro, Doctor Pedro Pinho and Prof. Cristina Branquinho. Currently I’m collaborating with eChanges in the project “Nitrogen critical levels and loads in a multifunctional landscape in the LTSER ZA-PVS” - eLTER H2020 call for Transnational Access (TA).  Overall, my research interests focus at understanding how we can use lichen diversity as ecological indicators to track global change effects worldwide.
