My networks

I developed my research line as a pre-doctoral research in the Department of Evolutionary Ecology at Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (CSIC) in Madrid, Spain. Currently, I broadened my line of research and I am interested in all aspects concerning the evolutionary relationship between lizards and their ecto- and endoparasites, with special focus on hematic parasites. Among the topics that I study there are the evolutionary impact of parasites on sexual selection, the thermoregulatory strategies that hosts adopt to cope with parasitic infections, and the possible value of parasites as environmental stress bio-indicators as, for example, in relation to climate change. Beside this, I am also interested in the little-known taxonomy of some groups of parasites, their phylogeographic origin and, in general, all aspects of their co-evolutionary history.
