Research interests

I am a theoretical ecologist working on the dynamics of ecological networks. Using mathematical and statistical tools I explore the fragility of species and ecosystems to different types of perturbation, for example: fishing, habitat destruction or climate change. Specifically, I am interested in the resilience and robustness of ecosystem to external drivers, e.g. how large perturbations are needed to push ecosystems from one state to another?
