She has bachelor degree at State University of Paraíba (2004), Master degree (Biological Sciences: Biodiversity) at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (2006), doctorate degree at the Paulista State University and Butantan Institute (Animal Biology: Ecology and Behavior) (2012), and post-doc Jr. at the Federal University of São Paulo (2013). Currently, she is a post-doc fellow of the post-graduation program in Ecology and Evolution at the Federal University of São Paulo, and she is a researcher associated at the Museum of Zoology of University of São Paulo, and Guest Post-doc at Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences (The Antonelli's Lab) at the University of Gothenburg. She is interested in diversity, taxonomy, evolution, biogeography, and conservation. She is using reptile and amphibians data to answer issues about the ecological and evolutionary processes that have shaped the current biodiversity of Neotropical region (with special focus in open areas like: Caatinga, Cerrado, Chaco, Pampas, Chiquitano, Lhanos, Guyana Savanna, Patagonian).

The organisms show individual geographic distribution patterns that not result of chance. Several past and current events are responsible for the presence of sets of taxa in a given area. The accumulation of events over time makes the reconstruction of the history of the spatial distribution of the biota a complex activity that can be explored in the light of historical biogeography. Th...
The identification of natural biogeographical regions is fundamental for comparisons in broad-scale ecological and evolutionary studies, and constitutes an essential tool for conservation planning. Several recent ecological and biogeographical studies have attempted to delimit bioregions at both global and local scales, and there is a long history of regionalization schemes proposed for...
