Bruno B. Castro

University of Aveiro, Portugal


Bruno B. Castro (born 1976) received his degree in Biology in 1998 from the University of Aveiro (Portugal) and his master degree in 2002 from the University of Coimbra (Portugal). He earned his doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in 2007 from the University of Aveiro (Portugal) and he is presently hired as assistant researcher at the Department of Biology & CESAM (Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies), University of Aveiro (Portugal). His early post-graduate formation was in ecotoxicology and he later progressed onto ecological aspects of freshwater ecosystems, particularly food-web interactions. Bruno Castro’s research has focused on a variety of scientific problems in environmental science, but his current research interests lie in the boundary between ecology and ecotoxicology, mainly focusing on the effect of (multiple) environmental stressors in populations, using a combination of laboratory and field approaches. He mostly uses planktonic invertebrates as model organisms, but he collaborates in studies with other organisms, such as fish, aquatic insects, and terrestrial invertebrates. He is keen on scientific subjects concerning how populations and communities cope with environmental- and man-induced change.
