Research interests

I am interested in fundamental questions about geographical and ecological drivers of diversification processes both bellow and above species level, with special focus in Neotropical plants. I am devoted to the integration of ecological and molecular techniques to get new insights about evolutionary processes that shape the current biodiversity patterns and to assist biodiversity conservation planning in critical ecosystems.
