Currently Visiting Professor of the State University of Santa Cruz - UESC, hosted in the Applied Ecology & Conservation Lab - LEAC and member of the Graduation Program of Ecology and Conservation of Biodiversity (PPGECB) at UESC. Graduated in Ecology from São Paulo State University - UNESP, Rio Claro and Doctor in Science (Applied Ecology) from ESALQ, University of São Paulo - USP, enjoyed an abroad period in the Integrative Ecology group, Doñana Biological Station, CSIC, Seville, Spain, coordinated by Dr. Pedro Jordano. The postdoctoral was carried at the Department of Ecology at Unesp, Rio Claro, SP and in 2015 was a visiting researcher at the McCleery`s Lab, coordinated by Dr. Robert McCleery, at the University of Florida, FL, United States. With knowledge in areas such as natural history, ecology, conservation biology, modeling, statistical and spatial analysis, the main goal is to understand how human disturbances such as defaunation, forest fragmentation and climate change affect the occurrence and distribution of mammalian species, as well as processes such as downsizing and rodentization. By applying diversity metrics (taxonomic, functional and phylogenetic), the goal is to identify which are the main ecological processes affected by human disturbances, and how these processes can affect the ecosystems functioning. The studies are located in the Atlantic Forest, one of the hotspots of biodiversity due to the high level of endemism and species richness, and where about 80% of the Brazilian population is concentrated. He was a PIBIC fellow in the undergraduate, FAPESP Fellowship TT-3 during the Technical Training project, FAPESP DD and FAPESP BEPE-DD during my Ph.D. and FAPESP PD and FAPESP BEPE-PD during my postdoctoral period.

Despite conservation efforts, the biodiversity loss is still happening quickly at regional or global scales, especially in hotspots like Atlantic Forest, due to increasing of disturbances, such as species overexploitation, destruction of habitats, invasion by alien species and large mammals removal. Small mammals play an important role in forest dynamics and they are good indicators of ...

The genera Euryoryzomys and Sooretamys are distinct species from the standpoint of evolutionary and ecological. These two strains phylogenetically belong to different ages and possibly distinct evolutionary into the oryzomyini tribe. Moreover Euryoryzomys russatus and Sooretamys angouya have different responses to the fragmentation process, however there is insufficient information avai...
