Research interests
I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with a joint position at the University of South Carolina, USA, and at CIBIO, University of Porto, Portugal, working on ecological forecasting with Dr. David Wethey.

My main research interest is the study of marine biodiversity and biogeography, with particular emphasis on the processes governing species distributions. Most of my recent works focus on the study of alterations in species distributions and their relation with climate change. I like multidisciplinary approaches, and my current projects combine aspects from experimental ecology, behavior analysis, physiology, climatology, electronics, and modeling.
