- Assistant Professor, Science and Mathematics Faculty, College of Integrated Sciences and Arts
Dr. de Albuquerque obtained his PhD in 2009 from the Universidad de Alcalá (Spain). His dissertation focused on biogeographical patterns of plants. As a Postdoctoral scholar, he examined the role of climatic and human factors in governing the spatial distribution of tree species in Mesoamerica. In addition, he helped develop new approaches to identify priority areas for conservation over broad and local scales. Now, he is an assistant professor at the Science and Mathematics Faculty in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at Arizona State University, Polytechic campus.
He is a conservation ecologist and a biogeographer at Arizona State University. His research is aimed at (i) developing modeling tools to identify the drivers of species diversity; (ii) developing new approaches to identify priority areas for conservation; and (iii) evaluating innovative geostatistical approaches that account for the complexity in structure and composition of ecosystems to mitigate disturbance and climate change impacts.
