My networks

Currently immersed in my Ph.D. studies, I am rigorously exploring the evolutionary ecology of rodent camouflage within the challenging landscape of the Sahara-Sahel region. Through interdisciplinary methodologies, I aim to understand how climatic changes have influenced rodent camouflage across varied dimensions, hoping this will inform future conservation practices in our rapidly changing world.

My foundational knowledge in both Biology and Ecology & Environment set the stage for this venture. Past research engagements include a deep dive into macrobenthic assemblages and a significant stint with the CIBIO/InBIO Biodeserts team focused on Sahara-Sahel rodent species. Further diversifying my expertise, I delved into molecular biology at the Institute of Vertebrate Biology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, refining my skills in animal genetics.

Beyond pure research, my managerial acumen shone through in roles like the project manager with Erasmus+. My linguistic capabilities have been frequently tapped for technical translations between Portuguese and English. My contributions to academia are cemented by publications in peer-reviewed journals and active participation in international seminars.

As I navigate the intricate world of academia, my commitment remains unyielding: to understand, advocate for, and ensure the preservation of biodiversity amidst the pressing challenges of our time.
