I am a physicist enthusiastic about biology. Currently I am a postdoc at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, and I am focused on the study of microbial population dynamics. Through the study of models based on statistical mechanics and stochastic processes I particularly aim to understand how environmental fluctuations and fluid transport affect the evolution of plankton population. During my PhD at the University of Granada (Spain) I concentrated on how diffusion, spatial disorder, network structure, and co-evolution affects the behavior of ecological and biological systems. In particular, I have experience in:

  • Non-equilibrium phase transition theory
  • Absorbing states
  • Disordered systems
  • Complex networks
  • Neutral theory
  • Percolation
  • Self-organized criticality and self-organized bistability.

and their interdisciplinary applications to:

  • Neuroscience
  • Theoretical ecology
  • Catastrophic shifts
  • Eco-evolution and adaptative dynamics
  • Plankton
  • Patterns of semi-arid areas.
