My research interests focus on animal ecology, and more particularly, on the influence of endogenous processes and exogenous stochastic forces driving spatial-temporal population dynamics. Ecological themes that attract my attention are, among others, life history strategies, density-dependence, interference competition within communities, predator-prey dynamics and interactions of biotic components of ecosystems with physical drivers. I am also interested in the non-linear responses of populations to all these processes, and in our ability to anticipate these responses for a better conservation of species and ecosystems.
