I received a Ph.D. in Conservation Biology from the University of Lisbon in 2013 and I am currently working in the eChanges of cE3c. My research is on landscape ecology, particularly in the field of Road Ecology. The impact of roads on wildlife is an emerging and one of the most challenging research fields in ecology, not only by the urgency of finding solutions that enable a sustainable coexistence between the road and wildlife, but also for the opportunity it provides to investigate the biology, population dynamics, genetic isolation and the behavior of wildlife species.
