    In general, my research interests are on the study of biodiversity, particularly on the fields of macroecology, metacommunity ecology, biogeography and spatial ecology.

    I am also interested in using mountain systems as tools for studying mechanisms behind biogeographic gradients in biodiversity and community assembly. I have worked mostly with bats, bat ectoparasites and rodents, but I consider my research to be question oriented rather than system oriented; now I am focusing on studying biodiversity with plant data. Many of my current projects are based on data from the Madidi Project, probably the longest and best sampled tropical elevational gradient with information on the distribution of woody plants.
