Research interests

Although I have a background in Forest and Nature Management my main interest focuses on movement and spatial ecology. Specifically , I try to integrate habitat and movement models into dynamics context using agent-based platform to understand patterns and drivers of interactions between agents and their environment. I initially investigated in the field of wildlife ecology, but now in the framework of the SiReMo project at the WSL I switch to human mobility, investigating movement patterns during recreational activities.
