I'm a Title. Click to edit me
I'm a Research Scientist from the National Spanish Research council (CSIC) at CREAF (Centre for Ecological Research and Applied Forestries). PhD at the Universitat de Barcelona (2000). Postdoc at McGill University (Québec, Canada) in Louis Lefebvre lab (2001-2003).
I am an evolutionary biologist interested in the processes that shaped current biodiversity and affect organisms' responses to environmental changes. I considered a range of animal model species to investigate specific mechanisms, and lead large scale comparative analyses to determine global patterns. I currently work as a postdoc in Rick Shine's lab at the University of Sydney, Australia. Here are some details on my past and current research projects. In 2016 I joined Sol lab as postdoc.
I started my PhD in 2012 to work on the causes and consequences of life history variation. I combine models with comparative studies.
I'm PhD student working in causes and consequences of variation in brain size in birds.
I'm a PhD student working in the evolution of life history strategies in birds.
Information for prospective students
I will usually consider qualified PhD students to join the Sol lab. Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me ((34) 93 581 46 78) if you're interested. I am especially interested in students with experience in statistics and animal ecology.
I don't currently have funding for new postdocs but would consider someone who wants to discuss an idea to apply for funding.
I am particularly interested in the role of the GIS as a tool to improve planning and management of biodiversity and natural resources conservation. In 2010 I fully joined the ETCSIA-UAB team giving support in the development of GIS tools for spatial and environmental data processing, and the implementation of methodologies for analyzing the effects of policies on environmental vectors (such as biodiversity, agricultural environment, etc.) at different scales, from regional to European level. In 2014 I started my thesis in Sol lab.
I did my PhD at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF), which I defended in 2014. Then I moved to the University of New South Wales (Australia) and I'm currently posdoctoral researcher in Sol's lab.
