I have a master degree in Biodiversity and Ecology (2006). My work has always been centered on seabirds conservation, studying their demography - specially the impact of introduced predators and light induced mortality on threatened species in my home island, Reunion island - and their role as bio-indicators of tropical ecosystems, in Seychelles.
This led to my involvement, in 2008, on the study of Cory's shearwater (Calonectris diomedea) population's dynamics in the archipelago of Azores.


Since 2012, I am working on the project "Ecology and evolution of the Azores woodpigeon: support tools for a management and conservation strategy" as research assistant. I have been collecting data during the last two years on Terceira island in order to obtain more information on the biology and ecology of this endemic subspecies (Columba palumbus azorica) and assess its population size.
