I am a Ph.D. candidate at CEABN and CEF (FCT PhD programme SUSFOR - Sustainable Forests and Products) and my project focus on the effects of sustainable forest management on the conservation of cork oak woodlands.

My main interest has always been to bring together ecology and application so, before starting my PhD, I worked in several projects related to ecological restoration. We were mostly interested in increasing restoration success of quarries by adapting methodologies and evaluating its effects on the ecosystem. I also had some experience in vegetation surveys, riparian quality evaluation, ecosystem services assessment, namely in urban parks, and coastal dunes restoration.
