PhD in Biology at the University of the Azores in 2022, "Impact of invasive algae in the Azorean algal community”. The aim of my PhD was to study the impact of the non-native seaweed Asparagopsis armata on the coastal marine communities of the Azores, understand the processes that facilitate or limit the distribution of this algae, as well as predict the potential effect of ocean warming on its metabolismo.

I am currently whit a research grant on the project "MIMAR+ – Seguimiento, control y mitigación de proliferaciones de organismos marinos asociadas a perturbaciones humanas y cambio climático en la Región Macaronésica”, MAC2/4.6d/249 (Açores, Madeira, Canárias, Cabo Verde, Mauritânia), with the aim to understand the impact of marine invasions associated to anthropogenic influence and climate changes.

My research interests lie in the fields of marine ecology, invasive macroalgae and the impact of climate change in marine organisms and ecosystems.
