I use statistics and bioinformatics to address questions at the interface between ecology and evolution. My research interests are generally related to phylogenetics, systematics, convervation biology, and the effects of climate change on biodiversity at different spatial and taxonomic scales!
I was born in the Colombian Andes (Armenia, Quindío) surrounded by stunning landscapes and amazing biodiversity! I received my bachelor's degree from Universidad del Valle, in Cali, Colombia. I am also very much into photography!
I am a current postdoctoral researcher working with Sudhir Kumar and Blair Hedges. I'm also affiliated to UCLA, working as staff researcher at Aradhna Tripati's lab. I also collaborate with three research groups in Colombia: Biodiversidad animal, GIE, and SEyBA.
