My main research interests center on spatial ecology, species movement behavior and the impact of linear infrastructures in wildlife communities, mainly amphibians and reptiles. I'm exploring better solutions to maintain landscape connectivity for a European protected species in the UK. By dealing with extensive data sets I interpolate results from small to larger scales using modeling techniques which enable me to understand natural patterns for future environmental sustainability.
