I graduated in Biology at the University of Coimbra in January 2019, and then I started my master's degree in Ecology also at UC. I am passionate about Biology since always, so I have always read about this area and participated in activities/projects aiming to increase my skills in different areas such as Ethology and Ornithology.
I am currently developing my Master's dissertation with CIBIO's Behavioral Ecology group under the guidance of Dr. Paulo Mota (DCV-UC & CIBIO-InBio) with whom I have been collaborating since 2018. My work is focused on the development of cognitive skills by imitation by a gregarious passerine species in the performance of various tasks.
Thus, my main goal is to try to find out whether a gregarious bird species is able to learn by imitation from other individuals of the same species and what role this may play in their daily lives.
