He is a researcher and leader of the group ‘Marine Ecology, Diversity and Change’ at CIBIO/InBIO, University of Porto, Portugal. Broadly trained as a marine biologist, he has been working on the consequences of climate change on biodiversity and biogeography, from local to continental scales. His research brings together a variety of disciplines, including climatology, biogeography, electronics, experimental ecology, physiology and modelling, is data intensive, and tries to integrate processes and mechanisms that operate from the very finest to the very broadest scales. His field studies are currently being carried out on the Atlantic coasts of Europe and Africa.
