  • Biography

    My background is in plant ecophysiology, and has worked in that field with crops, savanna's grasses, and rainforest trees.  In the last ten years my research work has been in plant community ecology of dry forests and mangrove areas.  Currently I am interested in the field of ecoinformatics, using diverse public databases (ecology, environmental, biodiversity, herbaria, forestry, public health, epidemiology, et c.) for teaching, using research base learning projects.  Above all, my main duty is to teach ecology related courses using a quantitative approach; besides teaching ecology related courses, the major component of my academic work is mentoring undergraduate students. I am especially interested in helping students to develop critical thinking and quantitative analysis skills that are required and/or valuable across different disciplines within Biology programs.
