Educational and work
My main research interest is in using complex species-interactions networks to frame important conservation problems at the community level. Such trophic or mutualistic networks offer an holistic view-point to evaluate the causes and consequences of disturbances, such as the impact of biological invasions or biodiversity-loss, on important ecosystem functions, particularly seed-dispersal and pollination. A second passion is uncovering the rules guiding island colonisation and community assembling.
