Ongoing collaborations


Alfredo G. Nicieza – UMIB (University of Oviedo-CSIC-PA), Spain

With Alfredo we are investigating the demographic traits and local population dynamics of brown trout (Salmo trutta) and European common frogs (Rana temporaria) in the Cantabrian Mountains (N Spain).


Fred Dalerum – UMIB (University of Oviedo-CSIC-PA), Spain

With Fred we are investigating the spatial occupancy patterns of small carnivore species in South Africa.


Gonzalo Mucientes – Fisheries Ecology Group, IIM (CSIC), Spain

With Gonzalo we are starting to analyse a unique mark-recapture dataset on 2 shark species (Prionace glauca and Isurus oxyrhynchus) from the North Atlantic.


Luis J. Chueca – Zoology Dept. University of the Basque Country, Spain

The work with Luis J. is focused on the endangered (but still harvested) land snail genus Iberus. The objective is to learn more about the demography of two poorly known species from Southern Spain.


Stephanie Carlson- Carlson Lab, UC-Berkeley, USA

My collaboration with Stephanie is focused on investigating the effects of MPAs on individual size selection, using data on European lobster from Norway.


Esben M. Olsen– Flødevigen marine research station (IMR) Norway

With Esben we seek to understand the impact of MPAs on mortality and other demographic traits of Atlantic cod and European lobster populations in Norway.


David Gutiérrez Garcia – Ecology Area, King Juan Carlos University, Spain

My collaboration with David is focused on the analysis of occupancy data of the butterfly Aglais urticae in order to investigate its spatial dynamics along altitudinal and latitudinal gradients in Spain.
