I graduated in Biology at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. My research during my internship at CIBIO-InBIO was focused in unravelling population genetics and systematics of North African hares (genus Lepus) and in the understanding of the associated biogeographical and ecological factors, using molecular markers to answer a variety of questions involving differentiation and gene flow.


Currently, I am on the Master’s degree in “Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution” also at CIBIO-InBIO and I am attending my second semester of the first year at BOKU (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences) in Vienna, Austria. I will start developing my Master Thesis in September 2014 and my goal is to assess the systematics and population history of North African hares (genus Lepus) inferring from molecular variation.

I am particularly interested in the Saharan environment, habitat protection and conservation planning, and molecular ecology of vertebrates. I have also a big interest in evaluating population dynamics, such as levels of fragmentation and gene flow among different population entities, and also among species too.
