Dr. Carvalho’s research interests include the assessment of the effects of anthropogenic and natural stressors on the biodiversity and functioning of the marine ecosystem from the gene to the community level. In the Red Sea, Dr. Carvalho has been investigating changes in the biodiversity patterns along multiple spatial and temporal scales through a combination of molecular and morphology-based approaches. Research has been focused on pelagic and benthic (coral reefs and soft-sediment) biotopes aiming for a holistic understanding of the Red Sea ecosystem functioning.
