Research Interests

Graduated as a biologist from the Universidade de Cidade de São Paulo, worked on understanding the changes in the ant Atta sexdens' behavioral and physiological responses to temperature rises. Currently pursuing master's in entomology, working on understanding physiological aspects of how the midge Belgica antarctica (and its close relatives) cope with Antarctica's extreme climate conditions. My research interests are ethology and ecophysiology, focusing on behavioral and physiological adaptations to climate change.
