I am currently a PhD student in Geology (Palaeontology and Stratigraphy) at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon), developing a work entitled “Fossil marine molluscs from the Last Interglacial stage MIS 5e: palaeoecology, palaeoclimatoloy, and palaeobiogeography”.

I’m graduated in Biology (minor in Geology) and Master in Geology of the Environment and Society, both degrees granted by the University of the Azores.

My research interests are related with the palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography of the marine molluscs from the geographical region of the Macaronesia, as also volcanic oceanic island ontogeny processes.

During my academic studies I have gained expertise in study of coastal geomorphology and in the acquisition of data using UAV’s.
