About me

Adrià López-BaucellsPhD student under the supervision of Christoph Meyer (University of Salford) and Jorge Palmeirim (University of Lisbon). My current project is based on autonomous remote stations for bat ultrasound detection to investigate the long-term impacts of forest fragmentation on aerial insectivorous bat communities, with fieldwork conducted in Central Amazon, Brazil.

I started working at the Bat Research Group, Natural Science Museum of Granollers (Catalonia) in 2005. Since then I have collaborated on several projects regarding habitat selection, biogeography, behaviour and migration, among other topics, shaping my background as a bat researcher focused on applied ecology.

In 2010, I concluded my BSc in Biology at the University of Barcelona with a final project on Neotropical bats in Colombia. Afterwards, I jumped to Sydney (Australia) to carry out my MSc thesis on competitive behavioural ecology and physiology in flying foxes, and more recently, I have also joined several bat-related expeditions and projects in the UK, North Africa, Kenya and Madagascar.
