Educational and work
I am evolutionary ecologist and graduated in Biology. I did my PhD in the area of plant reproductive ecology (University Rey Juan Carlos, Spain, 2009). After my PhD, I was hired as Assistant Lecturer at the University of Valladolid over a period of three academic years, combining teaching duties with an independent research line and also starting funded research collaborations about plant reproductive ecology and plant-plant interactions at both intra and interspecific levels. Afterwards, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Coimbra (Portugal). In 2015, I was awarded with a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship to begin my new research line on the effects of the social context on the evolution of reproductive strategies in plants. Currently, I am lecturer in Ecology at the King Juan Carlos University in Spain. I have a strong background in the study of plant reproductive traits and allocation strategies, at both micro-evolutionary and macro-evolutionary levels, combining observational, experimental and phylogenetic approaches. My current research line explores important questions about social evolution and reproductive strategies that have previously been surprisingly little studied in plants.
