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 and Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ. I am also very much into photography!


I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Practive at the School of Information at the University of Arizona. Before, I was hired as staff researcher at Aradhna Tripati's lab at UCLA. I also collaborate with three research groups in Colombia: Biodiversidad animal, GIE, and SEyBA.
