Evolutionary biology quantitative genetics phenotypic plasticity population dynamics statistical models mathematical models

After a BSc in Biology from the University of Lisbon, I received an MSc in Evolutionary Genetics and recently a PhD in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Edinburgh. In-between academic degrees, I worked on research projects at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia and the University of Porto (CIBIO-InBIO).

Thus far, my Research has somewhat fluctuated between evolutionary biology and population dynamics, encompassing empirical and theoretical projects on the quantification and evolution of phenotypic plasticity, the effects of non-heritable trait variation on population dynamics, and the relative roles of mutational input and selection strength in shaping differences among traits in their levels of genetic variation in connection with their upstream regulatory network.

In my current work, in the ACE (Adaptation to Complex Environments) group led by Ines Fragata, these two lines of work meet common ground, where I investigate the effects of trait evolution and variation on ecological dynamics and vice-versa.
