I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Oregon’s Vertebrate Paleontology Lab.

I am also a collaborator at the Mastozoology Laboratory,  Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (LAMAS/UNIRIO).In an attempt to name my main interests, I can briefly summarize in vertebrate paleontology and mammalian evolution. Going further, I am specifically interested in horse evolution.
