I am broadly interested in how communities are affected by ecological forces like migration, keystone species, trophic cascades, and competition, and whit this means in the context of human development and global climate change.

My master’s research delves into the interspecific interactions between pumas and foxes, and the cascading effects of these interactions on the community of vertebrates. I will conduct my study in the northern Patagonia steppe with the hope that my findings can be directly applied to management and conservation plans because it examines community responses to keystone predators.
