My main interests are focused on several aspects of evolutionary biology and ecology, using reptiles as model species.Currently, my line of research consists on the investigation of the divergence patterns, taxonomy and evolutionary history of the Mediterranean geckos of the genus Tarentola, as well as a more thermophysiological approach to the Tarentola mauritanica species complex, focusing on the effects that environmental temperature has on the sex determination of this species and genes involved.
