Guest Researcher

I am on my last stages of my PhD on Ecology in the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. And I am currently a guest researcher in WUR, working together with the GEOS project (https://www.geos-project.org/) and being supervised by David Ludwig and Charbel Niño El-Hani.

Im interested in agroecology, agroforestry systems, ecological restoration and my research now focuses on ethnobiology. Im studying the traditional ecological knowledge on birds and fish in a Brazilian fishing community and how the fishers from this community interact with the environment.
