  • Ecology of groundwater dependent ecosystems;
  • Groundwater fauna;
  • Coastal Marine Ecology

Profile

I'm a biologist specialized in the ecology of groundwater and marine ecology, with a strong record of scientific publications as 1st author in high impact factor journals. The ecology of groundwater is a new research area and I have the opportunity to develop pioneering research in Portugal.

I have a very experienced trainer profile, having developed and currently teaching post-graduate courses on the following topics:

1. Scientific Writing and Publishing of scientific papers and theses (starting level)

2. Scientific Writing and Publishing of scientific papers and theses (advanced level)

3. Experimental Design - how to develop robust scientific experiments (starting level).
