Research interests:

My research has multiple foci: 1) use of a metacommunity approach to understand patterns of species distributions along latent environmental gradients, 2) use of data on Caribbean vertebrates to explore biogeographic factors associated with species richness, composition, or metacommunity structure, 3) evaluation of effects of anthropogenic activities on bat populations, assemblages, and temporal activity in the Neotropics, and 4) use of ectoparasite populations and assemblages from bats of Paraguay as model systems to explore potential mechanism that mold patterns of abundance, species richness, and biodiversity on host populations and species.
