Graduated in Biology in 2011, at University of Évora, with a Master degree in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution at University of Porto since 2013, his main research interest is related with diversity, phylogeographic traits and distribution patterns of Mediterranean macrofungal communities.
Throughout his academic training he has been a passionate student of the biological dynamics, sensu lato, of the Mediterranean macrofungal communities. This has been driving his yet-short research career, and definitively influenced his MSc thesis project on the phylogeography of the most charismatic species of mushroom in the Iberian Peninsula (Amanita ponderosa). This project gave him the opportunity to combine the use of cutting-edge genomic tools (e.g., RAD sequencing) to assess the diversity of such poorly known organisms.
