I am a conservation scientist researching marine turtles and their habitats, mostly in West Africa, hoping to contribute to their conservation by informing biodiversity managers and stakeholders. My research involves several aspects of sea turtle ecology, including spatial distribution, migrations and connectivity, foraging ecology, population dynamics, climate change impacts and emerging diseases.
Presently, I have a Junior Leader Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at MARE – Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre – ISPA, Instituto Universitário, and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Exeter.
