About me

I was born in Mexico City. I studied Biology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) at the Faculty of Sciences and did my undergrad thesis on the evolutionary ecology of seed predation at the Ecology Institute under the supervision of Prof. Cesar Dominguez Perez-Tejada. I studied in UCLA, and a PhD at Duke University with Prof. Mark D. Rausher where I studied self-incompatibility and the evolution of plant reproductive strategies. I did a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto with Prof. Spencer C. H. Barrett studying the evolution of plant reproduction. Since 2008, I lead my own lab at the University of Stirling where I study plant evolution, speciation and buzz pollination.
