Communication and evolution in insects and fish

PhD Student

Behavioural physiology Bioacoustics Sensory ecology

I graduated in Biology in 2006 and received my master degree in Developmental and Evolutionary Biology in 2009, both from the University of Lisbon. During my master thesis I studied potassium currents of the cells of the hearing organ of the locust Schistocerca gregaria. Currently I am a PhD student in Biology (specialty Physiology and Biochemistry) within the team “Communication and evolution in insects and fish” of the "Conservation in Socio-Ecological Ecosystems" research group of cE3c and I am studying acoustic communication in the Lusitanian toadfish.

My PhD research is supervised by Prof. Paulo Fonseca from cE3c.

My goal is to understand how the Lusitanian fish communicates in the acoustically complex natural environment. Also I would like to contribute to the understanding of the development of the hearing in this species.
