PhD in Ecology. Working as associate researcher at Fiocruz. I am interested on the ecology and evolution of species interactions. Within this broad field I am particularly interested in studying parasitism in an ecological perspective, understanding the effects of wildlife loss and human disturbances on community structure and ecosystem function such as human health and well-being. I am also interested on the eco-evolutionary feedbacks of species interaction, studying how species traits shape and are shaped by the networks of species interactions.
