I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Marine Biology, University of São Paulo - Brazil. My current project focus is to define what ecological, biogeographical and anthropogenic drivers influence reef fish assemblages, and how these can vary over time. ​My academic background includes expertise in animal behavior, community ecology, marine macroecology, conservation, biogeography, functional ecology, population communities, statistical techniques, and the management of large databases using R. I have vast fieldwork experience, having coordinated and organized dozens expeditions for large projects, such as SISBIOTA-Mar and PELD. During the execution of these projects, I worked with the logistics of the expeditions, large databases, data collection on interactions among species, and conservation of reef communities. I am also very familiar to teamwork, research supervising, and spending long periods of time in remote locations under difficult living conditions​. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Species richness assessments have governed our understanding of global biodiversity patterns. As a result, we have constructed an incomplete view of the drivers and the implications of the geographic distribution of biodiversity. In light of this incomplete view and the continued declines of global biodiversity, trait-based approaches to quantify functional diversity indices are key to ...
