Nina Luisa Santostasi


I obtained my Ph.D. at Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) in joint supervision with the University of Montpellier (France) on modeling population dynamics in presence of hybridization with a focus on the hybridization between grey wolves and dogs.

I am currently working on developing optimal sampling strategies for estimating the abundance of brown bears in central Italy. In the next 2 years, I will work on developing integrated SDM-IBM models to explore the potential impact of individual differences in shaping species distributions under global changes.

I am interested in the development and application of demographic models to evaluate species conservation status and, more generally, to investigate the biological processes driving changes in abundance and distribution.
