My early scientific activities as research technician (1994-1998) addressed the distribution of biodiversity and conservation planning of an endemic lizard (Lacerta schreiberi) of the Iberian Peninsula. Innovative research was focused on the early use of Species Distribution Models (SDM) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for biogeographical analyses and conservation planning. Research during the PhD thesis at the University of Lisbon (1998-2003) aimed the biological characterisation of a threatened and virtually unknown Iberian viper (Vipera latastei) for conservation planning.
