I am a professional with experience in the areas of Forestry and Agrarian Economics, having completed my degree in Forestry Engineering in 2008 and my master's degree in Agricultural Economics, with a specialization in Natural Resources Economics in 2015. I am currently a University Assistant in the Department of Forestry Engineering at the Faculty of Agricultural and Forestry Engineering at Zambezi University, in the district of Mocuba, province of Zambezia, in Mozambique, teaching subjects in the Economics and Forestry Management Section.

During my professional career I have acquired solid knowledge about project preparation and analysis, both from a financial, technical, as well as economic, environmental and social approach. I have also developed monographs with students in the Agrarian Sector. I am currently seeking to develop my professional career in order to contribute to the creation of scientific knowledge of excellence at an international level, in areas related to the use, transformation and conservation of biodiversity and landscape values and their planning, with an emphasis on social and economic conditions of the respective productive tissues.

The forestry sector in Mozambique faces major challenges, especially in the integrated management (planning, organization and resources) and governance (legal framework, decision-making process and implementation) of resources. The scarcity of information regarding the growth of forests is the main problem to planning de sustainable exploration of forest resources and motivated me to join a Doctoral Program in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution with the aim of looking for answers that can contribute to promoting the reconciliation of agricultural production with environmental quality, preserving functional processes and biodiversity in forest ecosystems.
