Post-Doc Researcher

I was in Porto in 1973. I have a degree in Agriculture engineering, master in Environment management, conservation, and PhD in Agrarian Sciences, studying peatland restoration strategies in Azores islands (Portugal).

I have been participated in several projects related with Azorean flora and vegetation, mainly in wetlands and peatlands ecology and conservation.
