Research Interests

My research interests include the development and application of statistical modelling techniques to Biology and Agriculture, more specifically Ecology and Entomology. I am also interested in the computational implementation of statistical models, especially under the form of R code.

I am currently working on the development of computational and statistical tools to jointly model multivariate responses in ecological studies, in particular those involving the collection of abundance measurements.
