About

I have a PhD degree in ecology from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and I also took a Sandwich PhD program at Colorado State University (CSU) from January 2014 through July 2015. I have a master’s degree in Vertebrate Zoology from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC-MG). I am interesting to protect and conserve the Brazilian fauna, focusing mainly in the population status, habitat use and ecological interactions of mammal carnivores in the current fragmentation scenario of the Brazilian biomes. My research is focused on applying mark-recapture and occupancy models to estimate demographic parameters that can help us choose and implement the proper management strategies to conserve the Brazilian fauna (especially mammals).
