I’m a doctoral candidate at the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo. I’m part of the program on Systematics, Taxonomy and Biodiversity from the graduate school in the museum. The program has a wide scope ranging from basic $\alpha$-biodiversity studies to molecular phylogenetics, macroevolution, and interdisciplinary research. I’m broadly interested in paleobiology with a focus on fossil fishes, but am also interested in theoretical and quantitative research in paleobiology and evolution.
