My main aim is to quantify biodiversity patterns and to understand what processes and mechanisms are involved, across multiple spatial scales. I am, particularly, interested in determining the major drivers of species distribution and community assembly in order to develop efficient conservation programs. I believe that this information is crucial to predict how environmental changes will affect biological diversity at different levels of organization.
I'm also interested in developing and applying new statistical methods to address ecological questions.
