Analyzing metacommunity diversity patterns using graph-theoretic methods
As a post-doctoral fellow working with Jean-Philippe Lessard and Pedro Peres-Neto, my general research objective is to understand the environmental, ecological and spatial processes driving biodiversity patterns. More specifically, my research aims at assessing their respective influence on meta-community structure using graph-theoretical methods.
