Biography:

  • I was recently awarded with a postdoctoral fellowship from CNPq (Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Cientofico e Tecnologico), and my current research focuses on the relationship between diseases and acoustic communication in amphibians. 
  • I have being part of a well-regarded research group leaded by Dr. Luos Felipe Toledo in the Department of Animal Biology from the University of Campinas (Brazil). 
  • I have a PhD in Applied Ecology by the University of Sao Paulo (2013). In addition, I also have experience as professor in biological sciences by the Federal University of Sao Carlos (Brazil). 
  • In 2016 I have completed my first postdoctoral project with a FAPESP (Foundation of Amparo à State Research Sao Paulo) fellowship. 
  • During the last three years I have been specializing on bioacoustics analyzes,acoustic signals function and evolution of animal communication, counting with a collaboration from the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (CSIC), where I carried out an internship as a visiting researcher.
