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
- Self-organized criticality and self-organized bistability.
and their interdisciplinary applications to:
- Theoretical ecology
- Catastrophic shifts
- Eco-evolution and adaptative dynamics
- Patterns of semi-arid areas.
