I graduated in Forestry in 2011 and was awarded with a Doctorate Degree in Ecosystem conservation in 2018. Currently I'm working as country representative for the NGO WeForest in Brazil. My research interests encompass: ecology of second-growth forests, restoration ecology and ecological restoration in human-modified landscapes and forest landscape restoration. I contributed professionally with environmental institutions such as The Nature Conservancy and SOS Atlantic Forest. I also worked in restoration projects in plant nurseries and giving lectures and courses for NGOs. I'm fluent in Portuguese, English and Spanish. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

Tropical forest succession is a highly variable process which has been intensely studied in the last decades, in order to identify process that affect succession. However, few studies use both chronosequence techniques and landscape attributes to analyze forest succession. Our study will be carried out in the Corumbataí River Watershed, located in São Paulo state, Brazil. Despite forest...
Most of forest patches in southeast Brazil are surrounded by anthropic landscape and dominated by lianas. To know the role of such plants for the regeneration of these degraded patches is therefore essential for elaborating plans of ecological restoration. In such a context, the present project aims at studying the ecological filters that affect the regeneration of tree species in degra...
In highly deforested agricultural landscapes, second-growth forests are important biodiversity refuges for native species. Similarly, tree plantations may house many native species and provide important environmental services, while providing resources for landowners. Using historical maps to identify second-growth forests with ages from 7-53 years in agricultural landscapes of the Atla...
