Researcher ID: A-9261-2008
I earned a graduation in Forest Sciences at the Instituto Superior de Agronomia (ISA) (Universidade Técnica de Lisboa). I have also a Master degree in Natural Resources Management, obtained also at ISA (2005) and earned my PhD (2010) at Centro de Estudos Florestais (Dept. of Forestry – ISA) with a thesis focused in “Farmland bird responses to land use changes: the role of habitat fragmentation”.
My main research interests include the analyses of macroecological patterns of species, the spatial evolution of exotic and invasive species, but also the impacts of human activities on the distribution of vertebrates at different scales.
