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.
