Research Interests

  • Understanding how environmental parameters influence demography, habitat use and distribution of species and communities, and how anthropogenic impacts interact with these processes, is crucial to inform wildlife management and conservation. To generate this understanding, we need models that accurately describe ecological processes, and that disentangle true signals from sampling error to make reliable inference. My work is centered on the development and application of such methods, with special emphasis on statistical models that address common issues in wildlife research such as sparse data or imperfect observation processes.
