I am a CSIC Research Professor interested in studying how populations change in time and space depending on ecological drivers, including both biotic and abiotic factors. I am curious about why and when population dynamics become non-linear and why they deviate from the widely accepted logistic growth model and how dispersal processes affect these dynamics at local and non-local levels. I am interested in dispersal because it links uncertainty, information gathering and decision making at the spatial scale, and, more precisely, how sociality may trigger feedback responses and drive, at least partially, the non-linear responses of populations varying over time.
