Birthplace: Brazil

I have a major in Biological Science at State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) (2005), a MSc degree in Ecology at the same university (2008) and a PhD degree at University of São Paulo (USP) (2014). I was a postdoctoral fellow at Federal University of Pará (UFPA) (2015), conducting a research project investigating the impacts of extreme hydroclimatic events on food security in rural and urban populations in the Brazilian Amazon. Currently, I am postdoctoral fellow at the Complex Systems Modelling Program, at University of São Paulo (USP). In my current research project, I investigate the use and importance of hunting and bushmeat consumption, especially for food and nutritional security, and their impacts for game species conservation. I have experience in interdisciplinary research, mainly on the interface between Ecology and Social Sciences, working on the following research topics: natural resources use, forest value, food security, importance of bushmeat for urban and rural populations and the impacts of hunting for the conservation of game species.
