Supervisors: Dr Rob Saguero-Gómez (Starting Summer 2021)

I'm a population ecologist interested in population dynamics and demography. I have worked with several long-term data sets obtaining population estimates from capture-mark-recapture data to understand what are the main drivers of population dynamics. Within demography, my main interest is in life-history theory, namely, the effect of environment on variation in demographic rates. I will join the SalGo team as an MSCA fellow to examine how anthropogenic changes may push plant and animal species out of their life-history optima, and investigate the (existing and novel) demographic strategies of natural populations to cope with increased stochasticity in environmental conditions.
