Research overview

I am currently in the first year of my PhD in Environmental Sciences at the Lancaster University, and in the second year of my PhD in Applied Ecology at the Universidade Federal de Lavras (BRA). I have been dealing with different questions concerning the ecology of Tropical Dry Forests and Rainforests, using dung beetles as indicators of environmental changes. My thesis is focused on understanding to what extent biased and subjective choices across the design and analysis of field studies affects the way we perceive the species environment relationships.
