Susana A. M. Varela

I received my PhD in 2007 by the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), France. Since 2010, I have been working at FCUL as a Post-doctoral researcher and since 2013 as an Invited Professor. My research is in 
Behavioural Ecology, Neurobiology, Conservation and Evolution. I am interested in studying how and in what circumstances animals use the information that they acquire from other individuals (social information) to make decisions about prospective mates, habitats and food. I am also passionate by teaching, science education, communication and research ethics.




Manuel Sapage, PhD student

I study mate-choice copying generalisation (MCCG), both empirically and theoretically. MCCG is a mechanism of non-independent mate-choice where individuals change their mate preferences favouring similar mates to the ones they saw being chosen by conspecifics. My general goal is to predict the impact of MCCG in sexual selection and evolution.








Inês Órfão, PhD student

I study male intrasexual selection in guppies (P. reticulata). I'm interested in understanding how males model their behaviour according to the information that they extract from the behaviour of rival males when competing for access to females.







Antonieta Charrua, PhD student

I study animal play in primates. My goal is to contribute, with a comprehensive approach, for a greater knowledge about how this behaviour has evolved in different species, how does it change across an individual's life, how can it be distinguished from other behaviours, and how adaptive it is at the population and individual level. I am following the line of reasoning proposed by Bekoff, Burghardt, Spinka and others.





Gonçalo Faria, PhD student
I’m developing theory on the topics of kin selection and sexual selection. I would also like to research topics related to cultural evolution and natural selection, allowing a more integrated approach to the evolution of individuals, populations and species. I'm also interested in collaborating with labs with more empirical approaches so that I can verify my theoretical hypothesis.








Salomé Clemente, PhD student
I study reproductive heterospecific interactions, namely reproductive interference, in three species of spider mites Tetranychus spp. Reproductive interference is considered a strong ecological force, potentially leading to species exclusion.







Rita Andrade, MSc student

My main interests are in animal behaviour, cognition and learning, applied to conservation. My goal is to study the impact of the cultural transmission of behaviours to conservation ecology. Will the learning of new behaviours increase animals' adaptation ability to changing environments? 
Additionally to research, I also make part of the Association of Biology Students of my faculty and I dance in my free times.





Marília Sargento, MSc student

I study teaching behaviour in Papio hamadryas at the Lisbon Zoo. My question is whether teaching is more often a voluntary process, on the part of the adults, or if cubs learn opportunistically from adults' behaviours. I am interested in applying my research to Conservation Biology, namely to animal welfare in Zoos.





António Alexandre, MSc Student

My main areas of interest are animal behaviour and communication, primates and their tropical domains. Currently undergoing my master thesis, where I study wild Sumatran Orang-utan (Pongo abelii) and their vocalisations. My focus is the complexity and diversity of their alarm calls in a secondary forest in Sumatra, Indonesia, and their relevance towards the conservation of a highly threatened primate species that experiences daily destruction and fragmentation of their habitat as well as poaching. I also esteem education, Permaculture and Holistic approach
