Post-Doctoral Research Associate
Mafalda has a background in ecology and conservation biology of several mammal species. She obtained a PhD degree from Lisbon University, but her PhD studies were mainly conducted at Cardiff University on the extent of hybridisation between polecats and ferrets in Britain and the phylogeographic relationships between polecat lineages in Europe. For two years, Mafalda was a research assistant at Frozen Ark and she is now a research associate for the CryoArks initiative. She is responsible for the day-to-day management of project activities, liaising with partner and collaborating institutions, helping with grant applications and drafting of manuscripts, supporting sampling initiatives, and overseeing the project’s research and dissemination activities.
