- Research Grants
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.

Wild meat is an important source of protein and monetary income for rural people. Hunting pressure, however, can negatively affect hunted animals, threatening forest integrity in the long run, and reducing the value attributed to the forest by local populations. Defining the determinants of hunting is thus crucial to conservation strategies and to guarantee food security for human popul...
