Silvia Carvalho (Portugal)
Silvia B. Carvalho is a postdoctoral researcher in Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources (CIBIO-InBio), in Portugal.
Her current research interests focus on the interface between ecological modelling, systematic conservation planning and evolution.
Particularly, she is interested in developing methodologies and tools to integrate phylogenetic relationships and spatial patterns of genetic diversity into systematic conservation planning, and to optimize biodiversity conservation under dynamic threats, such as climate and land-use change.
Her research focuses in diverse geographic areas but particularly in the Mediterranean region and the Sahara, and she is currently interested in developing strategies to integrate conservation planning across terrestrial, freshwater and marine realms.
