PhD candidate (Co-advised with Javier Ruiz)
I hold a BSc in Marine Sciences, and a MSc in Mathematics. I am a quantitative and theoretical ecologist working in the mathematical and statistical analysis of biological data from real world applications. My overall goal is to understand the relative impacts of biotic interactions, several sources of stochasticity and partial observability on the dynamics and persistence of natural populations and communities.
Currently, I’m focusing my PhD research on the development of mathematical and statistical methods to understand the non-equilibrium persistence of ecological communities in non-stationary environments, using data from marine, terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems across the planet. To that end, I use methods from Empirical Dynamic Modelling, non-autonomous difference equations and topological dynamical systems theory, with a strong focus on inverse stochastic modelling of real systems.
