My research combines phylogenomics and comparative genomics approaches to understand the evolution of genomes and organisms. Specifically, I am interested in phylogenomic methodology and the resolution of recalcitrant phylogenomic questions, as well as to understanding the genomic basis of adaptation and major evolutionary innovations. I did my MSc. And PhD at the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (MNCN-CSIC) in Madrid, Spain (2008-2012), followed by postdoctoral appointments at the University of Konstanz, Germany (2013-2016), the University of Uppsala, Sweden (2017-2018), and currently back at the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales. During these years, I have used a variety of systems ranging from cichlid fishes, frogs, and vertebrates to mollusks and eukaryotes (protists) to gain insight into their phylogeny and evolution at the molecular and morphological levels, as well as the causes of adaptive radiations and the evolution of toxic peptides (venomics).
