Currently I am investigating the
consequences of food web structure for the stability and functioning of
ecosystems, using tools derived from graph theory and complex networks
analyses. I also use food web theory for understanding the recovery
patterns observed in biotas after mass extinctions. As life is a
multidimensional phenomenon, you'll also find here other personal
stuff, with special emphasis in experiences and information about
and ecological movements.
