Currently a young researcher at Universidade Federal de São Paulo, Campus Diadema, I am broadly interested in coevolution and community organization of avian malaria parasites (Apicomplexa: Haemosporida). More specifically, I am interested in how coevolutionary and community dynamics of the avian malaria system vary geographically, particularly between the tropical and temperate region, how host phylogeographic structure relates to that of their malaria parasites, and the evolution of host specificity. In my work I rely heavily on molecular tools and also have a general interest in phylogenetics. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
A major challenge for evolutionary biologists is to illuminate the various factors influencing species diversification. In this project, we plan to examine a poorly studied organism with respect to diversification - Plasmodium of birds - in a phylogeographic framework in order to address factors that influence genetic variation both in neutral and adaptive molecular markers. Among facto...
This study will investigate the geographical variation in avian malaria parasite (Apicomplexa: Haemosporida) diversity and prevalence within a single genus of bird (Pyriglena spp.), which has a widespread distribution in the Neotropics. The objectives are to (1) determine how avian malaria parasites in Pyriglena spp. relate phylogenetically to avian malaria parasites from other regions ...
