I am a Ph.D. student in the Doctoral programme in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution (BIODIV) at the Faculty of Sciences of University of Lisbon. I’m interested on biotic interactions, in particular on those established between plans and herbivores. Under the supervision of Sara Magalhães and Cristina Branquinho, my research focus on eco-evolutionary dynamics between herbivorous arthropods and plants growing in metal polluted environments. This project entwines the topics developed in the Evolutionary Ecology and the Echanges cE3c sub-groups.
