Carmen did her PhD on Projected effect of global change on species’ change in extinction risk (open access repository) with Carlo Rondinini and Michela Pacifici at Sapienza Universita di Roma, Italy, within the Global Mammal Assessment. She also closely collaborated with Stuart Butchard from BirdLife International.

Carmen is an ecologist interested in investigating the mechanisms behind species’ distributions and responses to change and their variation across taxa, regions, and time, with a particular focus on mammals and birds. She has experience with compiling large databases of functional traits (e.g. here).

Carmen’s research at the MOBI lab will be within the BEAST ERC project, where she will develop and test models interpolating biodiversity change across space, time, and their scales.
