Quantitative Ecology Lab 2.0

We are an interdisciplinary ecology research group that employs mathematical and statistical models to study how organisms interact among themselves and with their environment in heterogenous spatio-temporal settings.

Lab news

We are looking for a self-motivated PhD student to join our team! The candidate will join a interdisciplinary team studying the demographic and evolutionary consequences of re-colonizing secondary habitats in Puerto Rico.

We just published a meta-analysis on the empirical evidence supporting (or not) the virulence-transmission trade off

Congratulations to Judith! We are super excited for her as she accepted a PhD position at the University of Georgia! She will do research in vector biology.

Judith won Outsanding Poster Presentation in ABRCMS 2018 for her work during a summer internship. Congrats Judith!

New paper from the lab: “Distributional shifts in a biodiversity hotspot”.

New paper from the lab: “The drivers and consequences of unstable Plasmodium dynamics: a long-term study of three malaria parasite species infecting a tropical lizard”

Judith presented her work on vector detective work in a meeting at the Emory University-Laney Graduate School STEM Research and Career Symposium. Congrats Judith!

Nicole received a fellowship from Birds Caribbean to study the negative effects of Plasmodium infection on Puerto Rican urban birds.

The lab is moving! I am grateful of the opportunity to serve the University of Puerto Rico for the last couple of years. I has been a great honor to lead an awesome and hard-working lab group. In the fall 2018, the lab is moving to the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida. Looking forward to this next stage!
