Maria Teresa Machado Dias

Post-Doc Researcher

I received a Ph.D. in Ecophysiology from the Universidade de Lisboa in 2012 and I am currently working as a Post Doc in the Plant-Soil Ecology group of cE3c. My research focuses on disentangling the impacts of anthropogenic changes in N and P supplies on the structure and functioning of terrestrial Mediterranean ecosystems.

For many years I have been studying N cycling in ecosystems and N nutrition as a driving force for plant and soil ecology using several approaches (physiological, biochemical and a more ecosystem oriented). My interests include the role of N on ecological succession, primary productivity, C-P-N interactions, physiology of inorganic N assimilation and the role of plant-soil interactions in N acquisition.

I collaborate with several national and international researchers mostly working on the impacts of N and P on ecosystem structure and functioning, plant nutrition, biogeography, stoichiogenomics, genome and ionome analysis, soil microbiology and modelling.

My current research integrates species’ response to N and P supplies as a function of its own N and P demands in order to: i) improve the understanding of plant community changes driven by regional and global NP imbalances; and ii) predict changes in species’ distribution.
