Gonçalo Curveira-Santos is a conservation biologist and Ph.D. student in the frame of the BIODIV Doctoral Program (Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution) (2016-2020) at the Faculty of Science, University of Lisbon. Graduating in Biology from the University of Lisbon in 2014, he went on to complete a M.Sc. degree in Ecology and Conservation at Uppsala University, Sweden. His main academic interest is the collection of ecological evidence to support conservation action under human-induced environmental change, with special emphasis on carnivore species conservation ecology. He is presently working to understand how South African carnivore assemblages are structured across the complex land-use mosaic and management paradigms that characterize the local conservation landscape. In his research, he uses camera-traps to document the distribution and interactions between carnivores, such as lions and leopards, key well known large predators, but also often-overlooked smaller carnivore species. Ultimately, he aims to contribute to successful predator conservation and management plans in the region and the development of more holistic conservation approaches.
