My networks

I conduct interdisciplinary research at the interface of conservation science and ecology. Most of my research takes place in the tropics and sub-tropics and over the last ten years I have worked extensively in the Central Brazilian Amazon, Madagascar, Kenya and Macaronesia. I have a PhD in Conservation Biology by the University of Lisbon (2017) and a MSc in Conservation Science from the Imperial College London (2008). My main projects are associated with the evaluation of the impacts of agriculture and forest fragmentation on tropical vertebrates and on the assessment of the effectiveness of conservation interventions. I was previously a Post-doctoral Research Associate at the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, and I also worked as a Scientific Adviser for Lonely Planet (non-fiction wildlife books for children).
