I’m graduated in evolutionary and developmental biology at Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa. At the moment, I´m enrolled in a master’s program in the same area of knowledge and this year I will be working in ecological speciation using L. fabilis. I will also utilize microsatellites and AFLP to get a better understanding of the genetic diversity in Iberian populations of this species. This work will be supervised by Rui Faria and Juan Galindo.
My main interests are genetics and speciation and I’m interested in finding links between genetic differentiation and the origin of new and independent species.
