I have graduated in Biology at the University of Aveiro in 2016. This included a 1-year curricular internship at CIBIO-InBIO, where I studied the diet of the Pyrenean desman through metabarcoding techniques. Currently, I am on the second year of the master degree in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. My thesis project aims to develop an environmental DNA metabarcoding protocol to perform biodiversity surveys in desert environments, using Mauritanian gueltas as a case study. In the future, the obtained protocol can be extended to other arid regions, thus providing rapid and cost-effective biodiversity assessments in these remote areas, crucial for the development and implementation of conservation strategies. The scientific areas I’m most interested in are herpetology, biodiversity and conservation genetics
