I am an evolutionary biologist interested in the patterns and processes that produce and shape species diversity. Why are there so many species living in the tropical regions? Why some species are more successful than others if they both look the same? Do some species evolve faster than others depending on where they live? These are some questions that motive my research. To cover this questions I use computational tools that allow the study of genes and genomes. To learn more about my PhD project and other projects that I have been involved in, please go to Research or take a look to my Publications.
Currently I am a PhD student at the Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics Group in Estación Biológica de Doñana (CSIC), Seville, Spain.
