I did my bachelor in Biology (2005) and my master in Landscape Ecology and Nature Conservation (2007) with the title “Modelação Preditiva Hierárquica e Espacialmente Explícita da Distribuição de Espécies da Flora Vascular” in Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto. I developed my PhD at the same institution with the theme: “Modelling landscape invasion by alien plants under current and future conditions of climate and land use” (2012).


Currently, I am working as an FCT post-doctoral fellow in CIBIO-InBIO at the University of Évora, the title of my working plan is: “Modelling the dynamics of invasive plants in forest landscapes under scenarios of future climate, land use, forest management and fire disturbance”.

 

My area of expertise focuses on fundamental and applied research on ecological modelling of biodiversity geographic patterns, landscape ecology, environmental changes, and alien invader species. More specifically predicting isolated and synergic impacts of multi-scale environmental changes in the spread of biological invasions in heterogeneous landscapes, ecosystems and landscape functioning using both static and dynamic modelling.
