My previous research was focused on various ecological aspects of endemic lizard species in the Balearic Islands (Podarcis lilfordi) and their adaptations to insularity. During my PhD I analysed the ecological adaptations of Scelarcis perspicillata, an endemic species from North Africa introduced in the Balearic Islands. My current research interests are phylogenetic and morphological analysis of African and European reptile species along with island biogeography and co-evolutionary patterns of reptiles and parasites in islands.
