Biological Systems and Organisms

I study population ecology and life-history patterns of amphibians. I've worked with threatened species such as Redbelly Toads in Uruguay, which have declined in protected areas. My postdoc is focused on the populations of two common European species, whose declines have been reported in Switzerland in the last 40 years.
