Research Projects

 

I am interested on how animal species are distributed across the landscapes. I mainly focus on researching new methodologies for developing species distribution predictive models, by combining GIS techniques, advanced statistical methods and computer simulations. Modeling distribution and habitat selection is fundamental to understand animal species behavior as well as for improving conservation and management plans for wildlife. 

Main research projects:

Colony site selection of herons and egrets

Habitat analysis of the iberoriental reed bunting

Collective behavior emergence: computer simulation
