Marina Schmoeller do Prado Rodrigues

 

I am a biologist, with a master’s degree in Ecology, Conservation and Wildlife Management from the Federal University of Minas Gerais. My work focuses on ecology and biodiversity conservation on fragmented landscapes and on socioenvironmental sustainability.

At the NGO Fundação Biodiversitas (Belo Horizonte/MG - Brazil), in a partnership with the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment, I developed the site map for the Brazilian Alliance for Zero Extinction, prioritizing areas for the conservation of severely endangered species. Currently, I'm a member of the Synthesis in Atlantic Forest Ecology and Sustainability group (SES-MA), studying the drivers of species richness and the effectiveness of conservation strategies in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, aiming to provide subsides for public policy and decision making. I'm a PhD candidate at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I am currently developing part of my PhD research at the University of Melbourne School of Geography, under the supervision of Dr. Rebecca Runting. I am also an assistant researcher at the International Institute for Sustainability (rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
