Jorge F. Henriques is since 2015 a Ph.D. student of the programme BIODIV (Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution) at the University of Lisbon. He is within the Evolutionary Genetics group of cE3c and is currently under the tutorship of Prof. Manuela Coelho (cE3c). He holds a Bsc in Functional and Systems Biology and an Msc in Conservation Biology both in University of Lisbon.
His main research interests concern acclimation and adaptation of vertebrates to environmental stress and he is most interested in phenotypic plasticity and resilience towards future environmental changes. More specifically, he is interested on how genetic background relates to phenotypic plasticity and how microevolutionary processes affect species resilience towards future environmental changes scenarios.
