I am a plant community ecologist. I investigate how forest understories are structured when invaded. I have a Biology Bachelors's degree in Biology focused on Conservation Ecology from the Universidade Federal de São Carlos campus Sorocaba, Brazil, in 2013. Then, I worked as an environmental analyst for almost two years. Later, I returned to academia and pursued a Master's Degree in Plant Biodiversity and Environment with a minor in Vascular Plants in Environmental Analyzes in 2017. I started my Ph.D. degree at SEAS in 2018.

I am a Ph.D. candidate interested in how plant communities, especially forests, are structured. To understand it, I explore the role of invasive plants. My research focuses on investigating community ecology principles and how this knowledge can be applied to the management of invaded ecosystems.
