Cândida Maria Gomes Vale

I hold a BSc in Biology (University of Porto, 2008), M.Sc. in Biogeography and Conservation in Arid Environments (CIBIO-UP, 2010), and the Ph.D. on Biodiversity Conservation in Arid Environments under Climate Change (University of Porto, 2016). My research interests are mostly related to Biodiversity Conservation and connected disciplines, particularly Ecological Niche Modelling. I am focused on optimizing techniques and approaches by combining methodologies, solving statistical and conceptual problems. As a researcher in the Benthic Ecology Team in CIIMAR, I am interested in developing hybrid ecological models to improve predictions of climate change impacts on intertidal ecosystems.
