I am a terrestrial ecosystem ecologist interested in the effect of environmental perturbations and global change drivers on biogeochemistry, ecosystem functioning, ecological interactions, and the spatial distribution of soil resources, with specific interest on nutrient and carbon cycling. I have been a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Functional Ecology (CFE; University of Coimbra) since 2016 (Maternity leave from February 9 to July 8, 2019, and from September 8th, 2021 to February 7th, 2022). My main research lines are i) Effects of drought-induced forest die-off on soil functioning and plant-soil-microbe interactions ; ii) Brazilian Cerrado functionality and its vulnerability to climate change; and iii) Effects of climate change on soil GHG fluxes in drylands. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Throughout my career, I have been honoured with 9 fellowships/grants that allowed me to work at 6 different research centres in 4 countries and to establish collaborations with several international/national research groups (+200 collaborators). I have actively participated in > 20 projects, including five as PI: : NSRC (USA, 16000$, 2011); Santander Universidades (Spain, 2 grants, 5000¿ each, 2014 and 2015), CNPq (Brazil, 120.000R$, 2015), FCT (Portugal, 237.326¿, 2018). I am part of 3 global research surveys (MUSGONET; BIODESERT; URBANFUN). I have published 36 scientific articles, 33 in SCI journals, 30 of them in Q1 journals, and in which I am the leading or second author in most of them. These papers accumulate 846 citations and an h-index=18 (Google Scholar 12/07/2022). I have also co-authored 5 book chapters and participated in >40 contributions at scientific conferences. My scientific activity and its relevance have granted me invitations to be part of the Editorial Board of the SCI journals Plant and Soil and Web Ecology, to review project proposals for the Spanish Research Agency, to be jury in 2 Ph.D. defenses, to teach in 3 different countries, to give a talk at the U. of Viçosa (Brazil), to be a member of the scientific committee of the XV AEET Congress, and to be an honorary collaborator of the U. Pablo de Olavide (Spain). I have supervised 2 Ph.D. (plus 1 ongoing), 1 MSc, and 1 bachelor thesis, as well as several research stays and 1 postdoctoral research, and I am a regular reviewer for 8 SCI journals. The relevance of my research has been noticed on many occasions by the scientific press. I have dedicated a significant part of my time to bringing science closer to the general public by participating in several outreach activities (e.g. scientific podcasts, museum expositions), actively using social networks (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram), and being a member of the Social Network and Sensitization and Dissemination Committees of @MadresBDV. Finally, I have also expanded my organizing experience (2 international workshops) and my institutional responsibilities (PI of the research group ¿Biogeochemistry and Global Change¿ and co-responsible for the ¿Terrestrial Ecology Lab¿ in my current institution).
