I am a computational ecologist working as a Professor/Researcher at the UNGS. I code in R and C++, and try to promote open science and reproducibility. I also like photography, poetry, literature, music, walking, and I love my big family. My actual scientific projects are about global forest patches: early warnings and tipping points. And how climatic change influence ecological networks and biodiversity.
We are studying the dynamics of global forest patches using percolation and nucleation theory, finding new early warnings for fragmentation
When the habitat is fragmented species competition is higher and this could produce a collapse in biodiversity, we predict this using spatially explicit models.
