I completed a BSc in Terrestrial Environmental Biology (2007) and a MSc in Conservation Biology (2009) at the University of Lisbon (FCUL, Portugal). During my Master thesis I evaluated changes in prey and diet composition of Eurasian Otter (Lutra lutra) after 10 years, it response to those changes and tried to predict the implications for its conservation.

Since 2009, I have been working in several projects aiming the conservation and rehabilitation of fauna. I spent one year in a professional internship who intended to evaluate reference situations, mitigation or compensation measures for fauna on protection ranges of electrical lines.

Since 2012, I´m a researcher at the group coordinated by Prof. António Mira (CIBIO — University of Évora). I started in a research project aiming to provide insights on the factors affecting the persistence of metapopulations at different spatial and temporal scales in complex agricultural landscapes, using the Cabrera (Microtus cabrerae) and southern water voles (Arvicola sapidus) as model species.

Currently and since 2013, I´m working in a project aiming the ecological rehabilitation of quarries. This project involves impact assessment, implementation of mitigation measures and long-​term monitoring of fauna communities, in order to promote best management practices on quarry rehabilitation.

So far, my research areas have been related to the Ecology and Conservation of fauna, mainly vertebrates, and human activities, looking for compromises that increase the sustainable use of landscape and natural resources. Therefore, I´m mainly interested in the areas of Conservation and Ecology of terrestrial fauna; Ecological rehabilitation promoting fauna diversity; Ecological services and species interactions.
