MSc in Biology 1987 Catholic University of Chile PhD in Biology 1993 Catholic University of Chile Postdoc 1996-1998 University of California San Diego

I work in the evolutionary ecology of plant-animal interactions in the Chilean Mediterranean-type ecosystem. More specifically, I study the complexity of the natural selection process acting upon plant and animal phenotypes in a coevolutionary framework. I focus on mutualistic (pollination, seed dispersal) and antagonistic (parasitism, flower herbivory) interactions. An additional interest is history and philosophy of science with emphasis in ecology and evolution.
