I am a biologist and paleontologist with an especial interest on morphometrics and evolutionary biology.
I got the B.S. in Biology at the University of Málaga from 2001 to 2007.
I joined the Department of Ecology and Geology in 2005 to collaborate with Prof. Paul Palmqvist and his research team on the paleobiology and ecomorphology of Neogene and Quaternary mammals.
I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Málaga (Spain) in January 2015. My research focused on the morphological evolution of the carnivoran appendicular skeleton. My advisors were Dr. Paul Palmqvist and Dr. Borja Figueirido.
I worked as postdoctoral research assistant at the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Oxford (UK) from January 2017 to September 2018. My supervisor was Dr. Roger Benson.
Now, I am back in the University of Málaga.
My interests and knowledge include mammalian evolution, appendicular and craniodental anatomy, functional morphology, biomechanics and locomotion. I have also good methodological skills on geometric morphometric methods, phylogenetic comparative analyses and 3D imaging.
