I combine modeling and genetics to better understand how environmental systems
change, which factors determine their modifications, and which are the consequences across multiple spatial and temporal scales. My main research activities include: 1) Studying the factors that determine the biodiversity of amphibians and reptiles at broad spatial scale (e.g. macroecological biogeographical); 2) Evaluating how evolutionary processes can be
integrated into macroecological analyses; 3) Improving our understanding of biological invasions of amphibians and reptiles, and of their impact on native species; 4) Identifying strategies for amphibian conservation at the local, landscape and national scales. When I was 10 years old, newts saved my life, therefore amphibian conservation is a major commitment for me. 5) Using Environmental DNA (eDNA) for the study of impact of human activities on present and past biodiversity.
