My networks

I use genetics to understand biogeographic patterns and evolution of wildlife vertebrates. My main focus have been small mammals from Southeast Asia as a model to understand how diversity has originated in the Sundaland biodiversity hotspot. I have participated in several expeditions to Borneo and worked extensively in natural history collections, genomics protocols in lab and with bioinformatics. I am starting now an exciting project at CiBIO to study frogs from the Iberian Peninsula. Using these frogs as a model, I will focus on the genomic side in a collaboration on the development of new methodologies to determine priority conservation areas which takes into account not only number of species, but also intra-species genetic diversity and phylogenetic diversity.
