My research interests are centered on the study of the processes and mechanisms that control habitat selection in benthic invertebrates: (i) influence of scales of spatial heterogeneity on patterns of abundance and distribution of species, (ii) influence of hydrodynamic processes at different spatial and temporal scales, and behavior characteristics of benthic species on the habitat selection process, (iii) relative importance of space and food on benthic production through survival of larvae and juveniles: diversity of species and secondary production in coastal environments; numerical and digital methods of data analysis as support for the study of community structure; the heterogeneity of substratum and hard structures, living or inert, of biogenic origin; the importance of these structures as biomaterials; importance of scale in sampling design; sustainability and environmental diagnosis of the neritic and oceanic environments.
