I am a MSc student in Evolutionary and Developmental Biology at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, where I received my graduation in Biology in 2016. Currently, I am working on my MSc thesis, integrated within the project “EUCLIPO: Effect of EUtrophication and CLimate on POllinators and ecosystem service provision”, in the Computational Biology and Population Genomics (CoBiG2) group of cE3c, under the supervision of Prof Dr. Octávio S. Paulo (cE3c) and Dr. Luísa G. Carvalheiro (cE3c and UFG, Brazil). My project “Impact of intensified agricultural landscapes in the genetic variability and adaptation of Wild Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophila) from Portugal” aims to investigate the molecular basis of adaptation and the mechanisms underlying the evolution of populations of Wild Bees from agricultural and natural habitats. Using population genomic resources, I am trying to identify SNPs and/or genomic regions that can be associated with environmental variables and therefore, underlying the process of adaption of the different populations of Wild Bees.
