Introduction
I am a PhD student at Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia) in the Ecosounds Research Group. I've completed a Master Degree in Environmental Modelling and a Bachelor Degree in Biological Sciences both at Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil). My research interests are Acoustic Ecology and Soundscapes, Landscape Ecology as well as Animal Communication, Ecology and Zoology.

Article
Full-text available
High rates of biodiversity loss caused by human-induced changes in the environment require new methods for large scale fauna monitoring and data analysis. While ecoacoustic monitoring is increasingly being used and shows promise, analysis and interpretation of the big data produced remains a challenge. Computer-generated acoustic indices potentiall...
Article
Full-text available
The ecoacoustics approach for environmental recordings analysis is used to understand and identify big ecological patterns related to different sound sources, like animals, humans and the environment itself. Sounds can vary according to several features that can be on its surroundings or far away, therefore they are very much reliant on scale. Beca...
Article
Wildfire is a natural process in Brazilian savannas, but human activities alter fire regimes and threaten biodiversity. In this study, weused an ecoacoustics approach to assess fauna responses and recovery after wildfire in a Brazilian savanna. Six passive acoustic monitoring devices were used to record soundscapes before and after a wildfire a at...

A participatory monitoring programme of an exceptional modification of urban soundscapes during Covid-19 containment.
Article
There has been a body of research examining the sounds produced in landscapes. These sounds are commonly defined as soundscapes, however, the term is often used in different contexts. To understand how the various meanings attributed to soundscapes, we identified how soundscapes are represented in the scientific literature and identified current kn...
Article
Anthropogenic noise is a global pollutant and several studies have identified its impact on wildlife. This research shows how the noise produced by mining affects crickets' acoustic communication. Two passive acoustic monitoring devices (SMII) were installed in a forest fragment located at 500 m from the Brucutu Mine in Brazil. Another two SMII wer...
Article
Hydroelectric power plants (HPP) constitute one of the main forms of energy generation in the world, and its operation produces underwater noise through generators and turbines, which can potentially impact the aquatic fauna. Anthropogenic noise is a stressful factor and can affect behaviour, physiology and acoustic communication of many animal spe...

Project
The goal of this project is to associate landscape features in an Atlantic Forest area with soundscape through acoustic indices. We are also interested in study how sound behave at fragmented areas.
