I received a Ph.D. in Biology (Ecology and Biosystematic) from the University of Lisbon in 2004 and I am currently a post-doc researcher at the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Change (cE3c; University of Lisbon), being integrated in the Carnivore Ecology and Conservation research group. I’ am member of the IUCN SSC Small Carnivore Specialist Group.
My research focuses on mammalian ecology, behavior and conservation, with special interest in carnivores. I am also interested in the ecological strategies involved in carnivore adaptation to changing environments, in oak woodlands vertebrate community structure, in assessing the conservation role of agriculture landscape and in the impact of zoonotic parasites on wild mammal populations.
I currently collaborate with several international research groups working on a range of topics in mammalian ecology, conservation and wildlife ecology in agro-forestry systems, namely within the Centre for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA, University of São Paulo, Brazil), the Wildlife Conservation Research Group (WildCRU, University of Oxford, UK) and the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development (Utrecht University, Netherlands).
My current research is driven by one major goal: to understands the functional conservation role of agriculture and forestry landscapes to mammals.
