My research focuses on assessing the direct and indirect implications of predation and its impact on the environment. This approach allows me to better understand the role that biotic interactions play in the maintenance and functioning of ecosystems. I am particularly interested in assessing the impact of human activities (climate change, land use, and defaunation) on multitrophic interactions and their possible implications for the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. My research also generates models to predict the potential distribution of species, develops strategies for the management, conservation, and sustainable use of wildlife, and assesses the implications of reintroducing megafauna.
