About me

 

Researcher / Ecologist / Explorer At the moment, my main research interests center on spatial ecology and the impact of linear infrastructures in wildlife communities, mainly in amphibians. I'm undertaking a PhD at University of Hull, where I explore better solutions to maintain landscape connectivity in the UK for a European protected species. By dealing with extensive data sets I interpolate results from small to larger scales using modeling techniques which enable me to understand natural patterns for future environmental sustainability. I'm looking to work in projects that aim to : Find meaning in everyday information for future environmental sustainability; Look for new ways to communicate science through data viz; Connect with people from different scientific and disciplinary backgrounds to reach common goals.
