A list of the main projects I am currently involved.

Lead coordinator of this long-term project which aims to synthesize the existing knowledge on the structure and diversity of Neotropical forests and shrublands. Data is stored at the Ecology department of the University of São Paulo.
Synthesis of Neotropical Tree Biodiversity
Three-year international effort to dissect the patterns of tree diversity and rarity across Latin American biomes, based on over 8,000 inventories of forests and savannas, and to assess species extinction risks and vulnerability in the Neotropics.
Enhancing our understanding of rainforests
Member of the Brazilian team, which is one of the semifinalists competing in this challenge to accelerate the innovation of technologies for biodiversity assessment and revealing the true potential of the standing tropical rainforests.
