Ana M. Martín González

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in the study of ecological interactions among species, especially in plant-pollinator networks. I am now a postdoctoral researcher at the Pacific Ecoinformatics and Computational Ecology Lab, at Berkeley, USA, and I am affiliated to the Center of Macroecology, Evolution and Climate at University of Copenhagen, Denmark. For my postdoctoral project I intend to determine the evolutionary and ecological drivers of the structure of hummingbird-plant interaction networks at a macroecological scale, to ultimately model network dynamics and evolution under global change scenarios.

Before this, I obtained my PhD with a European mention at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain)
, and a Master in Science at University of Aarhus (Denmark).
