I’m an evolutionary biologist working on macroevolution. My research combines probabilistic approaches, fossil evidence and a variety of molecular markers to reconstruct the evolutionary history of organisms at large spatio-temporal scales. My main interest is to investigate patterns of biotic assemblage, with special emphasis on the processes shaping diversity patterns (speciation, extinction and dispersal). I am also interested in the fossil record and in its integration with current evidence to provide more realistic scenarios of the past. I have mostly worked with plants and insects as model systems.
