I have been a member of the Biodiversity Group of the Azores (CE3C) since 2017 when I started a grant from the Government of the Azores after my Erasmus in the group one year early. Since then, I have worked and collaborated on different projects, the main ones being: MACDIV - Macaronesian Islands as a testing ground for assessing drivers of biodiversity at multiple scales; SLAM - Long-Term Ecological Study of the Impacts of Climate Change in the natural forest of Azores and PRIBS -Regional Strategy for the control and prevention of invasive alien species.
I recently received a grant from FRCT - Fundo Regional da Ciência e Tecnologia, to do my Phd: "Evaluation of ecosystem services in agroecosystems of the Azores with different types of management" The main objective of my project is to evaluate the agroecosystems of the Azores, in terms from . ecosystem services / goods, High natural value agricultural land. All this through the study of bryophytes, vascular plants and arthropods, their biogeographic origin and the taxonomic composition and functional diversity of these communities.
