I am a marine biologist and coastal manager interested in species interactions and ecosystem dynamics. I have experience with offshore monitoring and manipulative field and laboratory experiments in the field of behavioural and physiological ecology. I also have a keen interest in ocean and coastal literacy initiatives.
My ongoing Ph.D. project aims to better understand how climate change-related stressors have been affecting the benthic communities (i.e., organisms that live at the bottom of a body of water), with particular focus on their functional traits and influence on carbon fluxes.
I am a member of the Centre for Coastal Research (CCR) sitting at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), Region South.
Former coordinator of the extension program "Pet-Mar: the use of recycling for the knowledge of marine animals" (São Paulo State University, UNESP), a tool for bottom-up ocean and coastal literacy of primary school children (2016-2018). Please see our publication about the project for more details.
Co-creator of the patented Mobile App "By-catch species’ identification - Shrimp trawl fisheries" (available in Portuguese), an interactive tool to help fishermen, environmental and fishery agencies, NGOs and society in Brazil to understand the bycatch species biodiversity.
Member of the Organising Committee - "Coastal Management and Marine Biology Week", São Vicente, Brazil (2013-2014)
