Postdoctoral Researcher - Juan de la Cierva fellow

I am a behavioural ecologist and conservation biologist with a strong focus on using bio-logging as a tool to advance our understanding of the ecology of free-moving animals. I am particularly interested in how human-driven stressors may threaten top predators inhabiting dynamic marine ecosystems through direct or cascading effects. Furthermore, I have been passionate about animal migration since childhood, and I am deeply interested in unravelling the secrets of these amazing movements along ocean basins and land masses.
I possess high-level skills in various state-of-the-art analytical techniques, including quantitative modelling of movement and behaviour, spatial ecology, stable isotope analysis, and advanced statistical approaches. Additionally, I have extensive experience in fieldwork, leading numerous fieldwork campaigns to deploy tracking devices and collect biological samples from seabirds. 
My ultimate goal is to provide essential knowledge on functional ecology in marine ecosystems to enhance conservation strategies and management policies, fostering the sustainable use of the oceans.
