Population genetics Procellariiformes Macaronesia

I have graduated in biology from the Faculty of Sciences of University of Lisbon (FCUL). My current research interests are evolutionary ecology and population genetics of vertebrate animal species, as well as their phylogenetic relationships.

Currently I am working on a population genetics project with a philopatric pelagic seabird, the White-faced Storm-petrel. The main goals of this project are to estimate levels of genetic diversity of a population in the Cape Verde archipelago and its degree of isolation relative to other Atlantic populations.
