Research & Education

I am an evolutionary biologist focused on biodiversity and ecology.

I graduated in biology at the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain), where I obtained a double major (Botany and Zoology) and later performed an MSc in Conservation Biology. I defended a doctoral thesis entitled “Macroevolution and microevolution in island systems: the Rand Flora pattern in the genus Canarina”, supervised by Dr. Isabel Sanmartín.
