I received a Ph.D. in Biology (Ecology and Biosystematics) from the University of Lisbon in 2004 and I am currently working in the Carnivore Conservation Ecology Subgroup within the Conservation in Socio-Ecological Systems (CSES) research group of cE3c. I am an Invited Assistant professor of wildlife Ecology at the University of Lisbon. My research focuses on mammalian ecology, behavior and conservation, with a special interest in carnivores. I am also interested in the ecological strategies involved in carnivore adaptation to changing environments and in assessing the conservation role of agriculture landscape.
For many years I have been involved in applied ecology research using as model system the mammalian community, and especially small and medium size carnivores.
I currently collaborate with several research teams from European, African and South American countries, which include not only research project, but also co-supervision of PhD students. Since 2005 I’ am member of IUCN SSC Small Carnivore Specialist Group, and since 2017 I am in the board of the Portuguese Ecological Society and of the “Terrestrial Carnivore Group”/Spanish Society for the Conservation and study of Mammalogy (SECEM).
My current research is driven by four overarching objectives: 1) Understand human impacts on individual, population and landscape-level patterns and processes; 2; Develop strategies for conserving mammals, and especially mammalian carnivores, in diverse natural ecosystems throughout the world, but also in agro-ecosystems and forestry landscapes; 3) Unravel the mechanisms and processes behind species resilient in agroecosystems; and 4) Understand how we can maximize biodiversity and promote a functional ecological network in agro-ecosystems, while allowing for an economically sustainable production.
