Possui doutorado em Aquatic Ecology - Kent State University (2008). Tem experiência na área de Ecologia de Ambientes Aquáticos e no estudos de Comportamento, Evolução e reprodução de crustáceos e peixes. I consider myself primarily a behavioural ecologist and I aim to integrate behavioural ecology with population ecology, population genetics and ecological modelling. I enjoy working with aquatic organisms and I am fascinated by the evolution of animal mating systems and strategies. I strongly believe that a deep knowledge of animal behaviours and mating strategies is fundamental in any program of conservation and management of biodiversity. Also, it is becoming more and more evident that anthropogenic changes are affecting behaviours and reproduction in many organisms. I am interested in understanding the effects of contaminants and acoustic pollution in aquatic organisms and to assess what behavioural changes can be used as biomarkers of stressors. My current main research interests are: sequential hermaphroditism (sex-change) in fish and crustaceans; behavioural eco-toxicology; colour change; patterns of sex allocation/sex ratios; sex determining mechanisms; intersexual conflicts.
