I am an evolutionary biologist studying the origin and maintenance of biological diversity. I did my undergrad in UNAM under the supervision of Cesar Dominguez, where I studied the evolutionary ecology of seed predation in tropical tree species. Afterwards I completed a PhD with Mark Rausher on the evolution of self-incompatibility and sex allocation at Duke University. I did a postdoc with Spencer Barrett at the University of Toronto where I continued studying plant reproductive strategies including heterostyly, heteranthery and clonal reproduction. Since 2008 I lead my lab on plant evolution at the University of Stirling, Scotland. We are interested in using ecological and genomic tools to study natural selection, speciation, and the evolution of adaptive diversity in plants.
