Past NIMBioS Postdoctoral Fellow
Luis Carrasco Tornero
Dates: September 2018 – September 2020
Project Title: Integrating remote sensing tools to explain biodiversity spatial patterns under global change
As a NIMBioS postdoctoral fellow, Luis Carrasco Tornero (Ph.D. Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Tsukuba, Japan, 2015) worked on a project to study the effects of landscape diversity and structure on the distribution of species and biodiversity. The research was conducted as a part of a Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Spatial Biology in the labs of Xingli Giam, Monica Papeş, and Kimberly Sheldon.
