Ecologist interested in the drivers of biome distribution and temporal stability at different scales, as well as their responses to climate change and natural and anthropogenic disturbances. His research focuses on the role of fire and herbivory regimes on the origin, maintenance, functioning and diversity of biomes, and on the evolution of their plant species, with an emphasis on the Cerrado and savannas. He currently works as an adjunct professor at the Federal University of Uberlândia. His doctoral thesis (UFSCar, Brazil) received an Honorable Mention at the Capes Theses Award 2015 edition, the main national thesis contest, in the field of Biodiversity. He served as a doctoral-sandwich fellow at the Centro de Investigaciones sobre Desertificación (CIDE) at the University of Valencia (Spain). He served as a postdoctoral researcher at the Plant Functional Ecology Laboratory at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP). Keywords: biome, fire, global change, macroecology, megafauna, plants, savanna, savanna-forest transitions, vegetation, tropical forest. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
