Educational and work
PhD in Biology (2013). Associate Professor. Ecologist specialized on metacommunity ecology. My focus is on the effect of landscape structure on metacommunity structure and biodiversity patterns. To this aim, we combine empirical and theoretical approaches through graph theory tools, numerical simulations and statistical analysis. In the last few years, I was mainly interested in how to define community isolation in different metacommunity network configurations and evaluate its effects on local community structure.
