My research interests have been focused on vertebrate ecology particularly on terrestrial mammals. I have worked with the primary purpose to understand the habitat-​species relationships and predator-​prey relationships through (multi-​scale) ecological modelling analysis in order to describe the principal factors shaping those relationships, and to forecast their distributions under those scenarios. Another important topic that I have been focused on, are the effects of roads on Mediterranean vertebrate populations. For the past seven years I have been studying the direct impacts of roads through the monitoring of road-​kills aiming to assess possible demographic effects and proposing mitigation measures.

Since 2010, my current research (PhD thesis — “Assessing and mitigating road effects on functional landscape connectivity: a case study with common genets (Genetta genetta) in a Mediterranean context” — SFRH/BD/66393/2009) addresses the functional landscape connectivity assessment in southern Portugal. It is focused on understanding the role of habitat corridors and landscape structure on carnivore population distribution and abundance. Particularly we want to know how roads and other linear infrastructures may influence dispersion of juveniles, which may contribute for population persistence. These questions are quite challenging, since we do not know yet the real impact of roads on Iberian carnivore populations and because carnivore life-​history features provide good information on landscape quality.
