Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Biociências (IB)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Matheus Colli-Silva holds a Bachelor's and Licentiate degree in Biology (2017) and earned his M.Sc. (2020) and Ph.D. (2023) in Botany from the University of São Paulo (Brazil). He completed exchange programs at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (Germany, 2019) and the New York Botanical Garden (USA, 2022). Currently, Matheus is a postdoctoral researcher in Biodiversity Genomics at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (United Kingdom), where he conducts the majority of his research work. Matheus also serves as an Associate Editor for Biodiversity Data Journal and PhytoKeys (since 2023). His primary scientific focus centers around the distribution, documentation, and recognition of South American plant diversity. His research spans biodiversity, biogeography, and conservation, with a strong emphasis on the following areas: (1) systematics and evolution of Malvaceae; (2) crop genomics and the origin of wild crop relatives, particularly focusing on cacao and other South American crops; and (3) biodiversity informatics, data repositories, and the synthesis of biogeographical patterns. He aims to integrate classical taxonomy with modern methodologies and theoretical foundations, including genomics, ecology, and data repositories, to better understand the origins, recognition, and documentation of plant biodiversity in Tropical Americas.
