Rafael currently is a Visiting Researcher in the Regional University of Cariri (URCA) funded by FUNCAP. He did postdoctoral research in the Federal University of ABC and in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation (CEC) of the University of Exeter (UK), funded by FAPESP. Rafael has a PhD in Comparative Biology at the University of São Paulo (USP) with an internship period at the CEC (UK) and funded by FAPESP. He obtained his Masters in Comparative Biology in USP, also funded by FAPESP and supported by CEBIMar - USP. He had his bachelor in Biological Sciences with specialization in Marine Biology at the State University of São Paulo (UNESP - Campus Experimental do Litoral Paulista) and an internship at the University of Aveiro (Portugal). He works with sensory ecology and behavioural/evolutionary ecology, using marine invertebrates as biological models. His research focus in (i) camouflage and colour change in Crustacea, with the use of visual models to understand mechanisms of colour perception of preys by different predators; (ii) ecology of marine populations and communities, using field and laboratory experiments, and also stable isotope analysis and geometric morphometrics, to understand different ecological and evolutionary processes structuring and maintaining the biodiversity in marine ecosystems.
