Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences at the University of São Paulo (2002/2003). Master in Ecology at the National Institute of Amazonian Research - INPA (2006) and Ph.D. in Botany at the Institute of Biosciences - USP (2011). I offered classes of botany and evolutionary biology at the Federal University of São Carlos (campus Sorocaba) during a year, from August 2011 to June 2012. I'm currently developing a post-doctoral project at the Institute of Biosciences - USP (FAPESP process 2012/02110-5; http://www.bv.fapesp.br/pt/bolsas/133325/evolucao-dos-nectarios-extraflorais-herdabilidade-selecao-natural-e-especializacao-das-interacoes-fo/). The duration of the pos-doc project is from May/2012 to December/2014, entitled - Evolution of extrafloral nectaries: heritability, natural selection and specialization of ant-plant interactions. I have field experience in ecology and botany including natural areas of rainforests (e.g. Amazon forest) and savannas (e.g. Cerrado). My actual research is focused on questions related to (1) distribution patterns of plants, and (2) trait evolution associated with different aspects of plant-animal interactions. I'm really interested in planning projects with evolutionary biology integrating observational and experimental approaches, considering the evolutionary process on the scale of populations, and the macro-evolutionary pattern among species.

This project follows from the doctoral thesis of Anselmo Nogueira, conducted between 2007 and 2011 (Ph.D. Fellowship FAPESP 07/54917-1 and Research Grant FAPESP 07/55433-8) in order to consolidate ecological and evolutionary studies of ant-plant-herbivores interactions in the tribe Bignonieae (Bignoniaceae). In this project, we expect to: (1) test whether extrafloral nectaries (EFNs) re...
The main aim of this project is consolidate ecological and evolutionary studies of ant-plant-herbivores interactions in the tribe Bignonieae (Bignoniaceae). During the six months in the Universidad de Jaén, we expect to: (1) test the ecological network structure of ant-plant interactions and the degree of specialization of these interactions in an Amazonian forest community, in conjunct...
