I study the ecology of species' populations, especially their viability and ways to protect them. My personal goal is to develop mathematical and statistical tools for nature conservancy, trying to merge basic and applied science. I try to translate all my findings directly into knowledge applicable to conservation biology.
I am also interested on taking advantage of opportunistic observations and non-systematic data collections (presence-only data), to make the best scientific inference from it. These data possess great value that is often overlooked.
I received my PhD in Conservation Biology at the Department of Ecology, SLU, Uppsala (Sweden). I own a MSc on Wildlife Management from Cordoba National University (Argentina). Before that, I obtained my degree in Biological Sciences at Comahue National University, S.C. Bariloche (Argentina).
