  Investigación

Mi línea de investigación se centra en entender mejor la evolución de caracteres fenotípicos, tales como morfología, historia de vida o comportamiento. También me interesa entender mejor los factores que afectan la acumulación y distrubución de la biodiversidad, analizando patrones temporales de diversificación y los factores que influyen sobre la especiación y extinción. Para abordar estas preguntas utilizo una aproximación macroevolutiva mediante método comparado filogenético.
