With a multidisciplinary profile between demography, population ecology, genetics and conservation biology and a strong quantitative component, I integrate ecological and evolutionary theory to analyze life histories in natural populations. One of my main interests is focused on the analysis of individual and population responses to environmental perturbations The focus of my work embraces three main areas: (i) theoretical, to advance on the understanding of biotic and abiotic processes driving population dynamics and the resulting patterns, (ii) methodological, developing new reliable statistical tools in animal demography, and (iii) applied, offering answers to managers for preserving biodiversity using an adaptive management approach. I work in different ecosystems and with different study models, such as seabirds, marine turtles, cetaceans, lizards, bears, salmonids and butterflies’ communities. I recently opened a complementary experimental research line with ants as a study model.
