Research interests

Free-living marine nematodesMeiofaunaMarine ecologyBiological oceanography


I am a biological oceanographer and PhD student at the Postgraduate Program on Coastal and Oceanic Systems at Federal University of Paraná, Brazil. Over the past few years I have worked with experimental and descriptive ecology of meiobenthic communities, with emphasis on spatial patterns of variation in diversity and composition of marine nematodes over multiple spatial scales. I have special interest in how landscape attributes influences nematode macroecological patterns of distribution.
