Research Interests

Currently, I am particularly interest on larval fish ecology both in estuarine and riverine systems. My dissertation research focused on the patterns and process of fish invasions in Iberian streams, specifically assessing this problem in the Lower Guadiana River (Portugal). Also, my efforts aim to improve conservation of endemic freshwater fishes from the Iberian Peninsula, specifically aiming to increase a sustainable water use and conservation of aquatic life.
