I am currently a PhD student at the University of Azores, since 2012, with the project “Genetic variation, connectivity and resilience of limpet populations from the Macaronesia islands (NE-Atlantic)”, under the supervision of Ana I Neto (University of Azores), Pedro Ribeiro (MARE – Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre, University of Azores) and Stephen J Hawkins (University of Southampton), within Azorean Biodiversity Group of cE3c. My main research interests lie in the field of evolutionary ecology, population genetics and connectivity in marine organisms.
