I concluded my PhD in Biology in 2017, my MSc in Conservation Biology in 2007 and my BSc in Biology in 2003 in the University of Évora. My academic background is ecology and conservation of birds, with a specialization in owls. I’m particularly interested in the links between their ecological role and their close connection to people. Ecotoxicology, habitat relations, breeding and trophic ecology, dispersal, and ethno-ornithology are some of my research interests. I have been involved in the production and delivery of educational and science outreach content, both face-to-face and online. Currently, I’m working in a project focused on restoration, ecosystem services, and biodiversity under the China-Europe Water Platform.
