"The MEDFOR Program provided a great chance for me as a person, and as a researcher. It gave me the opportunity to develop my experience, to learn a lot and more importantly to be exposed to different education systems, different aspects for addressing all the issues and problems. After finishing the program we were richer, with information, experience, connections and even with cultures. I can honestly say that this program has giving me a lot of opportunities to build my future. My master thesis was with the title: Monitoring two REINFFORCE Network Arboreta, Adaptation to Climate Change and Biotic Factors.
I am now a PhD researcher, in the Climate Change and Sustainable Development Policies Program, which is a joint initiative between the University of Lisbon, the Technical University of Lisbon and New University of Lisbon.T11
