I hold a BSc in Biology (Santa Ursula University, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2016) and the M.Sc. in Biological Aquatic Resources (University of Porto and CIIMAR, 2019). As a PhD student in biology, I study the impacts of tropicalization on habitat-forming seaweeds, as they are organisms of extreme importance for the development of biodiversity and are undergoing drastic changes with climate change. I’m part of the Benthic Ecology Team. My main interest is to understand marine ecological relationships within a climate change scenario and produce data that can help in the management and protection of these communities. As a scientific diver and diving instructor, I also work diving doing experiments in situ.
