I am an evolutionary biologist deeply interested in understanding why nature works as it works. What a complex question, right? This is probably one of the oldest, though challenging questions that humans have tried to answer. To help solving this conundrum, my research work seeks to unravel how and why the environment and phylogenetic history of organisms shape natural and sexual selection, two key evolutionary processes to understand male and female life-histories, species richness, populations viability, species extinction rates... 


   I have worked with different research institutions across the globe. My publications cover several research fields, including ecology, evolution, animal behaviour, animal communication and physiology. I also try to increase knowledge on species natural history. All in all, my professional trajectory demonstrates a commitment to integrative research approaches that tackle scientific questions from multiple perspectives.


    During these years, I have presented my work at scientific congresses and events. I also enjoy managing this type of meetings. Luckily, I have had the pleasure to mentor undergraduate, MSc and PhD students with whom I have learnt a lot during our pathway together.


      Linking science and photography has led me to win different awards from International research institutions, such as the British Ecological Society, the Royal Society and BMC Ecology journal. 

   In science,  the road is long, hard and beautiful. The conclusion is clear: there is no time to waste!!!
