I am conducting a Ph.D. in Biology and Ecology of Global Changes (BEAG) by the University of Aveiro starting in 2022 within the Carnivore Conservation Ecology research subgroup of cE3c. I am conducting the project “Trophic rewilding: unrevealing the effect on carnivores’ assemblage”. The main objective of this work is to understand the impact of trophic Rewilding, based on large domestic and wild herbivores populations restoration, on the spatial ecology, abundance, and fitness of Mediterranean populations of mesocarnivores. This project has supervision from Luís Miguel Rosalino, from Department of Animal Biology at Lisbon University, João Carvalho, from UVS at Aveiro University and Jella Wauters from Department of Reproduction Biology at Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, Germany.
