I did my undergraduate degree in Biology at the Universities of Luanda and Lisbon, and an MSc and PhD in Ecology at the University of Kansas. As an associate professor in the Department of Animal Biology of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, I have been teaching courses focused on various areas of ecology and conservation and supervising graduate student training in the same areas. Currently, I coordinate the environment branch of the Degree in Biology and the Conservation Ecology research group of cE3c.
I am personally and professionally highly committed to the preservation of biological diversity, and thus the overall aim of my research work is to contribute to the knowledge required for science based conservation and management at the global, ecosystem and species levels. Most of my somewhat diverse current research interests are centred on Conservation Ecology in tropical and Mediterranean ecosystems and involve the study of bats and birds, which I find very interesting per se and valuable as models to study many ecological issues.
