I am a marine biologist, with a master's degree in Biostatistic and a PhD in Mathematics & Statistics. Mostly, I have worked with Bayesian spatial-temporal models to estimate and predict the distribution of relevant important species in order to identify sensible habitats. I have also applied this knowledge to describe fishers behavior, to assess highly discards and by-catch hot-spots, and to identify nursery areas using different kinds of fishery dependent and independent data. I have studied different fisheries (industrial and small-scale/artisanal) and several ecosystems (Mediterranean, Indian Ocean and Brazilian coastal areas), working at different spatial (from local to global) and temporal scales. Recently, I have also been interested in linking social and ecological factors in the species distribution models framework to understand how they could affect the distribution of the species.
