PhD in Evolutionary Biology
My research focuses on mammal phylogeography, taxonomy and evolution through genetics/genomics, museum specimens and field studies.
After I graduated at the Univ. of Sevilla (2010), I did a Master in Biodiversity and Conservation Biology at the Univ. Pablo de Olavide (2011) , where I started to study population genetics in nectarivorous yeast in the Herrera Lab. Then, I got a FPI grant to do my doctorate in the biodiversity of Sundaland, a world hotspot in Southeast Asia. During my thesis in the CONSEVOL group at the Doñana Biological Station under the advisorship of Jennifer Leonard (2011-2017), I have studied phylogeographic patterns of rats endemic to Sundaland to better understand the drivers of diversification in this region.
