Research Interests

Supervisor: Dr Rob Saguero-Gómez

I am 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 am a Marie Curie fellow at the SalGo team, where I examine how anthropogenic changes 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.
