I am a biologist at the Forest and Nature Conservation Department of the Madeira Government. My research interests go from biogeography and island ecology to land snails taxonomy and conservation. I am currently involved in 3 conservation projects in Porto Santo, Madeira and Desertas Islands (Madeira archipleago), being co-responsible for the monitoring and conservation actions directed to the endemic land snails species.
