My networks

I am a M.Sc. graduate of Trent University, Canada, where I partook in an interdisciplinary curriculum of Biology and Philosophy with a focus on conservation, evolution, and philosophy of science. In 2016 I began working in Portugal, first at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência. Since then I have been working at CIBIO as a laboratory technician with the NGC and later the SALOMICS projects. 

My doctoral program explores the impact that anthropogenic disturbances have on urban populations of fire salamanders (Salamandra salamandra) in northern Portugal and Spain. I am personally interested in how conservation may be applied to urban systems and encouraging communities to connect and preserve the natural systems closest to them. My previous research experience includes detecting signatures of adaptation among wild populations and I am not including an exploration of microbiota and dietary analysis as part of my investigation. Together I hope to explore the breadth of biological responses to the Anthropocene.
