Bienvenidos! I invite you to browse and read about my work in the field of conservation ecology. My research focuses on understanding the effects of human activities on wildlife populations, with a specialization in aquatic mammals. To study these interactions, I develop projects based on long-term partnerships and interdisciplinary methodologies. This diversity is reflected in my projects and website, and I welcome you to explore it.

 

Ongoing Projects

My research takes place in diverse ecosystems, ranging from the highly industrialized Galveston Bay estuary to the central Amazon. Using mark-recapture models and spatial ecology tools, I study the ecology of species to assess the importance of anthropogenic threats. I also conduct human-dimensions research, primarily through interview methods, to understand the drivers of threats and inform conservation initiatives.
