Àlex Giménez Romero

My current research focuses on developing mathematical and computational models in the context of epidemiology and ecology. In particular, I am modelling the epidemics causing the Mass Mortality Event of Pinna nobilis, and the emergent epidemics in almond trees and vineyards caused by the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa in Europe. Besides, I am developing Machine Learning models to detect and classify different seagrass and algae species from satellite images and analyzing worldwide spatial data of coral reefs.
