As a biologist, I am interested on conservation biology and applied ecology. I am especially interested on the use of GIS and remote sensing tools to understand the effects that human activities such as land-use changes may have on species, communities and ecosystems and to suggest alternatives land-use planning and management procedures to reduce their impacts.
