I graduated in Biology at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto and recently graduated with my master degree at CIBIO-InBio / University of Porto in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution. My research during the master thesis was focused on population history and taxonomy of African hares (genus Lepus) inferred from genetic variation. Since there is lack of knowledge on these African lagomorphs, the main objectives were to unravel population genetics and systematics of African hares and understand the associated biogeographical and ecological factors, using molecular markers to answer a variety of questions involving differentiation and gene flow.
I am particularly interested in the African biodiversity and environment, habitat protection and conservation planning, as well as molecular ecology of vertebrates. I have also a big interest in evaluating population dynamics, such as levels of fragmentation and gene flow among different population entities, and also among species too. In addition, historical and ancient DNA sampling became a part of my research interest due to the valuable source of information in evolutionary history of hare species. Currently, I am working for the World Lagomorph Society in Vienna, Austria.
