Introduction
My current research interests focus on the use of state-of-the-art genomic tools to answer ecological questions and to inform management and conservation strategies in vulnerable ecosystems. I am currently a PhD student at the Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution programme (CIBIO-InBIO, FCUP). My PhD project is focused on combining ecological modelling and genomic approaches to unravel the adaptive potential and genomic resilience of two deep-sea habitat-forming sponges.

Article

In a recent paper, we presented new evidence and provided new insights on the status of Cantabrian brown bear subpopulations, relevant for this species conservation. Namely, we revealed the likely phylogeographic relation between eastern Cantabrian subpopulation and the historical Pyrenean population. We have also detected an asymmetric flow of all...

Over the centuries, the geographical distribution of brown bear (Ursus arctos) across the Iberian Peninsula has been decreasing, with the species currently confined to North Iberia. The Cantabrian brown bear population is one of the smallest in Europe and is structured into two subpopulations, positioned along an east-west axis. Given the current c...
Article
We performed high-quality genome sequencing of eight strains of the species of the genus Tepidimonas and examined the genomes of closely related strains from the databases to understand why Tepidimonas taiwanensis is the only strain of this genus that utilizes glucose and fructose for growth. We found that the assimilation of these hexoses by T. ta...

Recent advances in high throughput sequencing have transformed the study of wild organisms by facilitating the generation of high quality genome assemblies and dense genetic marker datasets. These resources have the potential to significantly advance our understanding of diverse phenomena at the level of species, populations and individuals, rangin...

Related publication abstract: ”Human population expansion has promoted contact between wildlife and domestic animals with severe ecological consequences, such as anthropogenic hybridization. In Portugal, Iberian wolf (Canis lupus signatus) populations are considered “Endangered” and co-habit with humans so the risks of hybridization with free-rangi...

The extinction of top predators, such as mammalian carnivores can lead to dramatic changes in foodweb structure and ecosystem dynamics. Since all native Malagasy terrestrial mammalian carnivores are endemic, their extinction implies a significant loss of biodiversity in Madagascar. Here we review the literature on Madagascar’s mammalian carnivores,...

Question
I am now using a simple saline extraction method but is not working as expected, concentrations are very low and mtDNA is not amplifying.
Can you recommend another option?  
Thank you!

Project
DEEPbaseline is an interdisciplinary project aimed at developing a framework for the co-creation of a knowledge baseline on the diversity and distribution of deep-sea sponge and coral vulnerable species and ecosystems of the continental shelf and upper slope of mainland Portugal. DEEPbaseline will bring together scientists from three partner institutions (CIIMAR, IPMA and Okeanos), local fishing communities and associations, fisheries managers, and the wider society to foster awareness and advance conservation actions towards their sustainability.
