I am interested in understanding the ecological and spatial forces driving metacommunity structure and dynamics. To do that, I combine observational and experimental approaches, and statistical modelling to understand the relative roles of these factors in structuring communities across landscapes. Although I use tropical streams and aquatic insects as model systems for most of my work, I have also been using datasets comprising multiple taxa from different environments. My research also focuses in using metacommunity ecology as a conceptual framework to investigate environmental change and its consequences. My current interests lie in extending metacommunity theory to fields that traditionally have been treated independently such complex food webs and spatial coexistence theory.
Dr. Elgui de Oliveira has a major in Biomedical Sciences (1997) from the School of Biosciences of Botucatu (IBB), São Paulo State University (UNESP), and a PhD degree in Pathology from Medical School of Botucatu (2002), UNESP. Fully dedicated to teaching and research at UNESP, he is professor of pathology at the Medical School of Botucatu (FMB), and researcher at the Institute of Biotechnology (IBTEC). He has expertise in human pathology, with focus on oncology and molecular pathology; his major areas of research are cancer biology, viral carcinogenesis, and environmental carcinogenesis. Other areas of interest include education for biosciences & healthcare careers, entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as information technologies (IT) applied to education, research, and technological development. Dr. Elgui de Oliveira has attended trainings in world-class institutions in North America, including Children's & Women’s Hospital / University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC, Canada; 2004); Texas Children’s Hospital / Baylor College of Medicine (Houston, TX, USA; 2005); Hillman Cancer Center / University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA, USA; 2006), Weill Medical College / Cornell University (WMCCU; New York, NY, USA; 2007), and the Whitehead Institute / Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA, USA; 2012). He is the principal investigator of the Viral Carcinogenesis and Cancer Biology Research Group (ViriCan - http://ViriCan.net) since its foundation, in 2002.
Fabricio Guimarães Baptista received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from São Paulo State University (UNESP), Brazil, in 2006 and 2010, respectively. From 2010 to 2011, he was a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Intelligent Material Systems and Structures (CIMSS), Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, performing research in the field of structural health monitoring and piezoelectric transducers. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, UNESP, Bauru, where he coordinates the Laboratory of Transducers and Data Acquisition, working in the fields of piezoelectricity, structural health monitoring, signal processing, data acquisition, and electronic instrumentation.
