Kurzer Lebenslauf

I am a biologist interested in applying genetic tools in species conservation studies. I have experience in sea turtles population genetics, phylogeography, hybridization and genomics conservation. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, in Berlin. I obtained my doctoral degree in Genetics at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. In my research, I have investigated the hybridization between sea turtles along the Brazilian coast using genomic data.


In-depth genomic analysis of hybridization between sea turtles

  • Population Genomics,

  • Conservation Genomics,

  • Hybridization and Introgression,

  • NGS data analysis
