Personal profile


I am interested in using insects as study models for understanding patterns of diversity. In the past I studied dung beetles and butterflies. Currently I am interested in the evolutionary dynamics, higher-level phylogeny, and biogeography of insects using phylogenetic methods applied to different character systems (molecular data, morphology, larvae and host plants).

More specifically, my PhD thesis is focused on the diversification patterns in Geometridae – a family of moths (order Lepidoptera). One of the projects involves molecular systematics and diversification of the Neotropical Ennominae, and another is focused on the phylogenetic position of the subfamilies Oenochrominae and Desmobathrinae within Geometridae.
