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

Bachelor degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Sao Paulo (2009), MsC in Ecology from the Biosciences Institute at the University of Sao Paulo (supervisor Dr. Paulo R. Guimarães Jr, year 2013), and PhD in Ecology from The State Univerisity of Campinas (supervisor Dr. Marcus A.M. de Aguiar, year 2018). Her dissertation focused on mechanisms structuring resource partitioning between individuals of the same species, combining empirical data, optimal foraging theory models and ecological networks. Her thesis investigated how coevolution and spatial structure drive phenotypic and genotypic partners of interacting species for which the outcome of interaction is context dependent. She is currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Chicago, working with Dr. Stefano Allesina. Has experience in Ecology and Evolution with a focus on: niche theory, intrapopulational variation in resource use, mathematical models in ecology and evolution, ecological networks, theoretical ecology, evolutionary ecology, coevolution, species interaction, coexistence between species e mechanisms that promote and maintain biodiversity.
