Galiana Ibañez Nuria


My research focuses on the integration of spatial and biogeographical processes into species interaction network research to better understand large-scale biodiversity patterns. The main objective of my research is twofold: to understand how ecological communities are organised across the globe and to disentangle the role of biotic interactions in determining large-scale biodiversity patterns. My research approach merges the development of computational and mathematical theoretical models for ecological systems with the analysis of large empirical datasets. This integrated set of scientific-technical skills allows me to tackle challenging problems at the interface between ecology and biogeography.
