Field of work

I started my research on snakes in 2009 when I set out to get information about diversity, natural history and spatial distribution of snakes in the northernmost part of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Since 2013, I am focused on trying to understand the processes that lead to vulnerability and threat patterns in snakes of the Pernambuco Endemism Center.
