I have a bachelor's degree in Biology and a master's degree in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto (FCUP). During my MSc thesis at CIBIO-InBIO, I focused on identifying the potential mechanisms correlated with the spatial distribution of amphibian diversity in the Iberian Peninsula. Through this research work, I acquired experience in semi-automated approaches of data compilation, estimation of phylogenetic diversity patterns and spatial analysis.
Currently, I am a BIODIV PhD student. My research will largely expand on my master’s thesis project, by incorporating intraspecific analysis in a broader scale and multidisciplinary framework, in order to understand which ecological and evolutionary processes drive diversity structure across space and how climate change might negatively impact its distribution.
