Position: Post-Doc Researcher
Member Type: Researchers

I graduated in the Univeristy of Porto in 1996, where I also earned a MSc (2000) and a PhD (2005) as part of the GABBA Program. I moved to CIBIO-InBIO in 2009, where I helped establishing the Behavioural Ecology Group, as an Assistant Researcher (Ciencia 2008 Program).

 

I have been working mainly in animal behaviour, mating systems and sexual selection related topics. I am interested in understanding life history and mating system variation across a species geographical distribution. Moreover, I am also exploring other topics that involve the unravelling of previously undescribed alternative mating tactics. Primarily using syngnathids as a model species, a fascinating family of fish displaying male pregnancy, I am currently addressing the mechanisms of post-copulatory sexual selection and its implications on species evolution.
