I received a PhD in Marine Ecology from the University of Plymouth in 2009 and I am currently a post-doctoral researcher working in the Azorean Biodiversity Group of cE3c. My current research is driven by four overarching objectives on: i) Patterns and Processes, ii) Exploitation of coastal resources, iii) Marine biodiversity, and iv) Biotic interactions under climate change.
