Personal journey

I graduated in Biology at the University of Porto and I’m currently in the second year of the Masters on Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution at CIBIO-InBIO, University of Porto.

Research Interests

The aims of my Master’s thesis consist in describing the sentinel and vigilance behaviours, for the first time, in the sociable-weaver (Philetairus socius), in order to understand if and why some individuals might be more prone to invest in these behaviours, than others.  We aim to quantify this investment in the wild using artificial feeders together with an elevated perch, while applying artificial intelligence and deep learning methods to obtain our results.
