My research interests are in behavioural and evolutionary ecology of butterflies, moths, and other insects, within a context to improve their conservation at the landscape scale. I joined WildCRU for almost six years (2005-2011). After my stay at WildCRU I joined Prof. Henrique Pereira’s team in Lisbon to study effects of farmland abandonment –passive rewilding– on moth diversity patterns in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, situated within northern Portugal. Currently, I’m doing research at the Behavioural Ecology and Conservation research group of Prof. Hans Van Dyck in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. This collaborative type of work aims to better understand eco-evolutionary effects of urbanisation on communities of several organism groups, among which butterflies and moths.
