Bienvenidos! I invite you to browse and learn about my career as a conservation ecologist. My research focuses on understanding the effects of human activities on wildlife populations, with a specialization in cetaceans. To study these interactions, I develop projects based on interdisciplinary methodologies and on-the-ground collaborations. This diversity is reflected in my projects and website, and I welcome you to explore it.
My research takes place in diverse ecosystems, ranging from the highly industralized 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-based research, primarily through interview methods, to understand the drivers of threats and inform conservation initiatives.
