I graduated in Biology at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. Currently, I am completing the Master Course in “Biodiversity Genetics and Evolution” at CIBIO-InBIO/FCUP, with the MSc thesis entitled “The potential of REDD+ as conservation opportunity for the Angolan Scarp forests: Lessons from the unique Kumbira forest”. I have been combined remote sensing techniques and in-field surveys to evaluate the possibility of integration of the tropical forests of the Angolan Scarp in a future REDD+ (Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) project.

I am particularly interested in conservation science, specifically on the assessment of changes in biodiversity and carbon stocks in the context of climate change mitigation, and the links between ecosystem services and poverty alleviation in tropical areas.
