I am a community ecologist with a keen interest in understanding how ecological phenomena arise from interactions between entities in space and time. As such, I have so far focused my research on the structure and dynamics of ecological networks: how interactions of different types can be seamlessly incorporated in their representation, how species persist in these networks, and the role of space in shaping their dynamics.
I am actually integrating insights from species coexistence theory into this view of ecological communities as complex systems, by studying the spatiotemporal dynamics of a grassland ecosystem in the beautiful Doñana National Park (Spain).
With these lines of research, my overall aim is to contribute to applying ecological theory to conservation and restoration actions.
