I am broadly interested on the ecological and evolutionary consequences of climate change as well as forest ecology, with a geographical focus on the Mediterranean region. My research interests include assessing the role of climate change on tree demography, species’ extinctions and range dynamics, using a combination of field and analytical techniques such as dendrochronology, field observations and experiments, and species distribution modelling. I am particularly interested in developing and applying new statistical approaches to tackle ecological and biogeographical questions, often through the integration of evidences across disciplines and spatio-temporal scales.
