This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed here represent my own and not those of my employer or university.
I was born and raised in the San Juan metro area, Puerto Rico. I have a B.S. in Biology and a M.S. degree in Tropical Ecology from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras.
You can follow me on Twitter (in Spanish and English) or visit my personal blog (in Spanish). I contribute to Wikipedia in English and Spanish and started contributing to the Encyclopedia of Life as a curator. I recently started using git, you can find my public repo at Github.
My professional interests include:
- Vertebrate Ecology
- Ecological Informatics
- Soundscape Ecology
- Community and Population Ecology
- Web-based ecological applications
- Public Understanding of Science
Among these areas, I have several questions or areas I want to explore as a scientist:
- Current ecological theory applied to conservation policy
- Problems like the limited data available for most species and the establishment of conservation policy based on that data
- New uses of technology and sensors for ecological research
- New ways of obtaining data continuously using remote stations that require minimal maintenance while providing huge amounts of data
- Consumer products applied to ecological methods
- Land-use change and its implications on conservation strategies
- Science education, particularly ecology and evolution
- Ecological research with practical applications
