I have been working trying to integrate genetics and stable isotopes in samples from both plant and animal collections to test levels of assignment accuracy that might exceeds those of either method alone.
I'm a Ph.D. in ecology, working primarily with mastozoology. In collaboration with Dr. Gabriela Nardoto, I am using carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes as a tool to assess the trophic niche of small mammals communities at Cerrado biome.

My doctoral research focuses on the evolution of monogamy of one Neotropical bird, Stripe-tailed yellow finch (Sicalis citrina), and their migration. I am using stable isotopes as a tool to identify the main source of carotenoid pigments and the relationship between body condition, carbon, and nitrogen stable isotopes, carotenoid concentration, and phenotype quality.
My research focuses on the use of stable isotopes as a tool to discriminate captive x wildlife animals as well as to identify the geographic origin of seized animals from the Brazilian Amazon region.
My doctoral research deals with the integration of remote sensing and geoprocessing methods with isotopic ecology. My research aims to elaborate soil and plant δ13C isoscapes for the Brazilian Neotropical Savanna. The results of this research may also help further studies within the applied isotopic ecology, such as those related to species migration, eating habits and forensic science.
The main idea of my research is the use of stable isotopes as a tool to combat animal trafficking. More specifically, the intent is to characterize the isotopic fractionation and signature shift of wild versus captivity Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola). This is the most trafficked animal in Brazil, and stable isotopes can be a powerful methodology to identify "laundry" individuals and the origin of wild animals seized.

My master's research focuses on understanding the soil capacity to retain organic matter on a topossequence at the Planalto Médio of the state of Rio Grande do Sul by using nitrogen stable isotopes and magnetic susceptibility of soil samples.
