Areas of expertise My general interest is the construction of spatially explicit theoretical models, validated through experimental observations, with the aim of explaining a variety of processes such as territoriality, foraging, disease spread and ecosystem nutrient cycling.

One of the features central to these apparently disparate processes is how animals move and interact among each other. My objective is to study and ultimately predict how certain spatio-temporal ecological patterns emerge from basic “microscopic” interactions and movement rules.
