Educational and work
I`m a ecologist working of fire ecology. I study the role of fire in shaping community composition and ecosystem processes in savanna ecosystems, with a focus on management and restoration of dry ecosystems. I`m interested in the spatial and temporal variation of fire regimes on tropical savannas.
