Main Research Interests

My main research interests are evolutionary biology and evolutionary ecology.  I study how ecological processes can shape evolutionary trajectories and in which conditions a harmful or spiteful behaviour can be maintained on an evolutionary timescale.

 

Academic Qualifications

- 2005: 5-year college graduation in Biology (University of Évora)
