Research interests

I am a conservation scientist interested in finding landscape and wildlife patterns, and investigating the different mechanisms that produce changes in them. My research activity often involves large-scale analysis and the consideration of the human influence on the ecological systems. Because of these socio-ecological elements, I often work in an interdisciplinary environment. I use GIS and remote sensing analysis constantly, since they are a cost-effective way to obtain information of features on the ground. My goal is to provide relevant spatial information that can inform species and ecosystem management, and to generate strategies to overcome ecosystems deterioration.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time outside, taking walks, biking, and attending art events. Winters in Wisconsin have also motivated me to get out of heated spaces and try cross country skiing and ice skating. I’m very interested in learning from and about other cultures.
