I got my PhD from Catholic University of Chile in 1993. Since then I have been interested in questions related to plant-animal interactions with emphasis on mutualistic (pollination, seed dispersal) and antagonist (floral herbivory, host-parasite) interactions. I often set my research in a coevolutionary framework to understand the way contemporary and historical processes have molded the origin and unfolding of ecological interactions. In my research I use a series of methodological approaches, including field experiments, natural selection estimates, geometric morphometrics, network analyses, quantitative genetics and phylogenetic analyses, among others.
