Research Interests

I am an evolutionary biologist interested in different aspects of adaptation and speciation: pesticide resistance evolution, genomics of local adaptation, genomics of speciation, reproductive isolation, and genome evolution. I am currently working on the drivers of radiation on neotropical plants.
