Former member (Visiting Scholar)
I am a full professor in Ecology, teaching ecology courses and leading the Biodiversity Lab in the Department of Biology of Federal University of Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil. I earned my Ph.D. in Conservation Ecology at the Federal University of Minas Gerais. I have published refereed articles and scientific chapters in books, mainly focusing on tropical ecology (community ecology in general) and plant-animal interactions such as pollination. My field work focuses on tropical forest ecosystems in Brazil, specifically the Atlantic Forest and Cerrado. I am also interested in ecological restoration, focusing on the role of biodiversity and ecological processes.
