About Me

I'm a friendly person. I love nature, plants and all ecological interactions...
I'm very peaceful, and always willing to help.

I'm a Ph.D. student at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil).
My dissertation is about Opuntia, a genus from Cactaceae family. I'm investigating phylogenetic relationships in southern South American species and potential uses of these species in agriculture.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is a great opportunity to meet people, know different cultures and share accommodations.

Moreover, I'm trying to keep myself updated by attending conferences, congresses, symposiums and other scientific events linked to my field of study. So, I frequently need to search possibles hosts to share accommodation.
