I am currently a PhD student at the University of Azores, since 2013, with the project “Seasonal variation and structure of cobble beaches and its biological communities in the Azores – The particular case of the decapods”. The project is being developed within the Azorean Biodiversity Group of cE3c, under the supervision of Ana I Neto (Biodiversity group, University of Azores), Eduardo Brito de Azevedo (CCMMG, University of the Azores) and José M. N. Azevedo (Biodiversity group, University of Azores).
Its main goal is the study of coastal decapod communities in their relationship with habitat structure and their response to seasonal and interannual changes in oceanographic parameters.
