Ecologist and limnologist who uses empirical and theoretical approaches to study ecological dynamics across scales. Present research interest divides into two main areas: Global Change Ecology and Evolutionary Ecology.
2) Evolutionary Ecology: focussing on the analysis of the ecological restrictions to the evolution of life from a tropho-kinetic perspective, investigating how fundamental restrictions in physical encounters, energetic demands and biochemical composition of the organisms condition the evolution of form and behaviour and eventually the distribution of life forms.
Formerly at CEAB (2001-2012) and Department of Ecology University of Barcelona (1988-2001). Former CRAM director (1989-2001)
