I am broadly interested in studying the evolutionary history of mammals and learning about the processes that have played important role in shaping their current diversity and biogeographic patterns in the Neotropics.
My research includes the systematics and natural history of tropical mammals, using primarily molecular approaches, which allow me to explore the phylogeographic and population genetic patterns of species restricted to fragile environments such as montane and insular systems.
Combining phylogenetics, the coalescent theory and the species distribution modeling approaches allow me to generate hypotheses that contributes to the understanding of the evolutionary history and the potential effect of climate change on tropical mammals.
Other interests includes conservation genetics and the building of local capacity.
