Logotipo Lecar
  Projects
 

As a marine biologist, my interests are to investigate how biotic and abiotic factors influence
patterns and processes in reef environments and how these relationships vary in space
and time. Currently, I’m part of LECAR team as a post-doctoral researcher (Universidade
Federal do Rio de Janeiro - UFRJ) evaluating macroecological patterns in herbivores in reef
environments, and responsible for some databases of monitoring programs (Projeto
Costão Rochoso in Arraial do Cabo Marine Extractive Reserve, Long-term monitoring
program of reef communities in Brazilian oceanic islands).
