I received a Ph.D. in Agricultural Sciences (Plant Protection) from the University of Azores in 2000 and I am currently working in the IERS RG of cE3c. I am a professor of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Azores. My research focuses on Integrated Applied Entomology, Integrated Protection; Protection of plants and pests; safeguards to combat crop pests and other (rats, termites); Creation of dispersion models and explanatory pest behavior and working of contingency plans to tackle them.

For many years I have been involved in of Japanese beetle research using as model system Azorean islands.

My current research strategy is related with:
