I’m an ecological statistician studying animal population ecology. With students and colleagues I’m so lucky to have, we focus on questions in ecology with the impact of climate change and human pressures on population dynamics, in evolutionary ecology with the action of natural selection and life-history traits and in conservation biology with the management of large mammals (e.g., wolves, lynx, bears and dolphins). Related to the latter, I have become interested in human-wildlife conflicts and how interdisciplinary approaches (combining sociology, economy and ecology in a modelling framework) can contribute to the coexistence of humans and animals.

My role in SUSTAIN

I'm an external observer in the project. I'm happy to help Sustain PhD students and post-docs on modelling issues.
