I decided to pursue my Ph.D. based on my experiences of earning my master's degree and working as a data analyst for a marine conservation nonprofit in Mexico. I believe that modern quantitative methods can significantly enhance our comprehension of ecosystems and help address complex conservation and management questions that have proved challenging thus far. Non-parametric tools, such as Markov chains and Bayesian statistics, offer versatile applications, spanning from analyzing animal behavior to population studies and conservation decision-making. My research centers on using these tools in datasets from endangered pelagic species to better understand them and support their conservation and management.
