I am a PhD Student from the University of Porto working at CIBIO-InBIO. My thesis focuses on the use of molecular tools, i.e. metabarcoding, to study the diet of bats and better understand their ecology, evolution and role as providers of ecosystem services.

 

My research interests include conservation and ecology, but also population genetics, biogeography and ecological niche modeling. Although I am currently working with bats, I am interested in most faunal groups, including birds and insects, and how they cope with humanized landscapes.
