I work in the analysis and identification of biodiversity spatial patterns, from species to populations and individuals. For this I used four powerful tools to better understand how space influence biodiversity: Geographical Information Systems, Remote Sensing, Ecological Niche Modelling, and Spatial Statistics. My main areas of research are: application of new technologies on species’ distributions atlases, ecological modelling of species’ ranges, identification of biogeographical regions and species’ chorotypes, mapping and modelling road-kill hotspots, and home ranges.
