My networks

I graduated in Biology in 2016 and concluded my MSc degree in Ecology and Environment in 2018, both at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto (FCUP). 

My master thesis, entitled "Methodological and ecological insights on wind farm environmental impact assessment”, was the result of a partnership between FCUP and an environmental consultancy company. Its main goals were to understand the influence of the scavenger community composition and its avoidance behaviour towards the turbines on carcass removal, and test new detectability models. 

My first contact with CIBIO team was during a curricular internship in my last year as a graduate student. After my MSc degree, I have worked again on CIBIO as a collaborator on some projects under the scope of management and conservation of wild vertebrates’. 

Along my academic and professional journey, I have developed a particular scientific interest on applied ecology, on environmental and ecological impact of human infrastructures and actions, as well as on habitat restoration. 

Currently, I am a PhD student focused on habitat restoration processes, especially on the acorn dispersal ecosystem service as an ecological restoration tool in oak forests regeneration and expansion, such as on the efficiency of management strategies.
