He completed a BSc in Ecology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) anda PhD in BIology at Unicamp. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard and the University of Würzburg. Paulo Oliveira’s research is on the natural history, ecology and behavior of tropical ants, with a focus on ant-plant-herbivore interactions.
