Currículo Resumido

First Degree in Biology (1988, FCUL) and PhD in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology (1998, University of Glasgow, IK).

I have worked in the Institute of Nature Conservation (Ministry of the Environment (1987-1999), in FCUL as a pos-doc researcher (1999-2006), in the Natural History Museum of Lisbon University (2006-2013) and as a Assistant Researcher in the University of Aveiro (2013). Currently, I am Assistant Lecturer in DBA/FCUL. I teach Ecology to undergraduate student, Land Management, GIS and Research Project to Master students and I am also involved in the Doctoral Programme entitled "Biology and Ecology of Global Change".

I am a member of Research of Adaptation Biology and Ecological Processes research group in CESAM-Lisboa, and PI of the Lab of Behavioral and Population Ecology within that research group. I am also curator of the Bird Collection in the Museum of Natural History and Science, of Lisbon University.

I have been responsible for 5 pos-doc researchers, supervised 8 PhD students (5 concluded) and over 40 other students (master, first degree, Erasmus, etc). I have been involved in 16 research projects, 6 of them as PI.

Scientific Interests

My main research fields is avian ecology. It includes feeding ecology of pelagic seabirds and estuarine birds, spatial modelling of bird distribution, population demography of long-lived seabirds and several aspects of bird migration. My work requires a strong engagement in fieldwork, mostly related with dietary studies of seabirds and shorebirds, and with gathering information from bird-born devices. The work on seabirds has been carried out in Portugal mainland, in the Azores and Madeira, in close connection with local authorities and researchers. I am also involved in a long term study of albatrosses in the Falkland islands, with other colleagues and local researcher. Currently, my seabird work is carried out at Berlenga islands, Selvagem Grande and Desertas islands (Madeira, Portugal). My research on the ecology of estuarine birds has been mostly carried out in the Tagus estuary, but our team is now actively carrying out research in other areas within the migratory flyways, such as Guinea-Bissau and Mauritania.
