I am an ecologist/biogeographer mainly interested in understanding how global change is causing species distributions to change. I am particularly interested in the linkages between non-native species and climate. I often work with a single or a few species – usually invaders that pose great threats to conservation such as the crayfish Procambarus clarkii and Pacifastacus leniusculus or that are important human disease vectors such as the mosquito Aedes aegypti. I'm also highly interested in understanding how the ongoing accumulation of non-native species is causing species assemblages to change and how this may affect broad and fine-scale biogeographical patterns.

Finally, I also try to contribute to the testing and possible improvement of the statistical and spatial tools used for analyzing and forecasting ecological patterns.

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at: the REFER Biodiversity Chair, CIBIO-InBIO, Portugal (group coordinated by: Dr. Henrique Miguel Pereira) and at the Alexander Koenig Research Museum, Germany (group coordinated by: Dr. Dennis Rödder).
