About

I'm interested in how the rapidly changing field of genomics can contribute to conservation biology. During my PhD I explored different sources of DNA, such as non-invasively collected samples and museum specimens, to gain insight into the distribution of genetic diversity in the lion. I have also worked on metabarcoding and eDNA for assessing community composition. Currently I work on a comparative adaptive genomics study of Neotropical co-distributed species from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
