I received a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Lisbon (Faculty of Sciences) in 2013 and I am currently working in the Conservation Ecology research group of cE3c. My research focuses on ecosystem services and natural capital in the montado.
For many years I have been involved in ecological research using as models small mammals of the montado. I currently collaborate with several colleagues, both from CE3C and from other research centres (Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies –LUCSUS; Institute for Environmental Studies, VU University Amsterdam), covering different areas of research connected with ecosystem services. This cooperation is occurring within the OPERA (Operational Potential for Ecosystem Research Applications) project focusing on enabling the connection between ecosystem services science and practice by stakeholders.
My current research is driven by three overarching objectives: i) measure and map ecosystem services in the montado, with particular focus on the cultural services; ii) test tools and instruments to assess ecosystem services; iii) use of the concept of ecosystem services to promote a management of the montado compatible with its high conservation value.
