Assistant Professor, Landscape Ecology
I am primarily interested in the determinism of the spatial distributions of animal species, from a fine scale (movement models) to a large scale (distribution in the landscape) in relation to the habitat and other species. My work lies on a strong theoretical and methodological basis using the movement ecology framework and the concept of ecological niche, and allows applied achievements in the context of animal population management, as well as basic developments at the intersection of evolutionary ecology and behavioral ecology. My main study species are large vertebrates, such as wood stork and sea turtles in Florida.
