Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated in Biological Sciences (Universidade Federal do Paraná - UFPR; 1994), Master in Forest Engineering (UFPR; 2001), PhD in Ecology and Conservation (UFPR; 2013), and Postdoctoral Fellow in Ecology (UFPR; 2014; Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais; 2015). Currently, I teach at the Paulista State University (UNESP) - Campus do Litoral Paulista and in its Postgraduate Program in Biodiversity. I am especially interested in insularized continental ecosystems such as salt marshes, campos de altitude, and cloud forests. In these naturally isolated environments, I study the biodiversity and ecology of birds and amphibians and the vegetation dynamics to understand adaptations and vulnerabilities to climate change. In salt marshes, I have been conducting continuous research for 11 years. By looking to overlooked environments, I discovered in them some undescribed species. I also work with conservation of nature, for example elaborating plans of conservation of endangered species and managing a conservation unit (Bicudinho do Brejo Reserve).
