Research Interests

My research goals are directed toward understanding the mechanisms that drive the dynamics and the distribution of biodiversity patterns across different spatial and temporal scales. In particular I study the effects of filters induced by biogeographical constraints, landscape factors, environmental factors and management practices on community assembly.

I am also interested in new methods and tools to improve biodiversity assessment and data analysis. 

I am currently working on land-use effects on diversity in the Biodiversity Exploratories project.
