Renata M. Diaz

I am an ecologist & data scientist. I study the biological and mathematical processes that generate emergent patterns in biodiversity, with a particular interest in how perturbations propagate across levels of organization and over time in ecological systems. I use a variety of approaches, including computationally- and data- intensive synthesis, cross-disciplinary statistical methods, and theoretical frameworks derived from ecology and complexity science. I believe strongly in the importance of open science, and I work to implement and disseminate best practices for open, replicable, and reproducible computational research.
