Qui sóc? · About me

I am an evolutionary biologist broadly interested in the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that shape niche evolution and geographic ranges of living organisms. My research incorporates molecular and analytical tools from the fields of phylogenetic comparative methods, biogeography, community ecology, and phylogeography. I am particularly interested in Alpine & Mediterranean plant species, but I also work with other organisms (birds, amphibians, squamates and mammals so far) as study systems to address questions within my field of expertise.

Since 2009 I am working on the research team
EMABIO (Evolution, Modeling and Analysis of Biodiversity) in the Laboratoire d'Écologie Alpine (Grenoble, France), where I work mainly with Dr. Sebastien Lavergne & Dr. Wilfried Thuiller within the framework of the ERC project TEEMBIO. My current research is now dedicated to elucidate the evolutionary origins and maintenance of plant diversity in the Alpine biome using next-generation sequencing and high performance computing. At the present time, I am progressively going deeper into the multidisciplinary integration of high-throughput sequencing technology, bioinformatics, phylogenomics, ecological data and phylogenetic comparative methods.


Sóc doctora en Biologia i la meva recerca es centra principalment en l'estudi de la diversificació de les especies i la biogeografia. M'interessa sobretot l'evolució de la biodiversitat de les regions alpines i mediterrànies.

ctualment formo part del grup de recerca EMABIO (Evolution, Modeling and Analysis of Biodiversity) en el
Laboratoire d'Écologie Alpine (Grenoble, França). Dins d'aquest grup treballo principalment amb el Dr. Sebastien Lavergne i el Dr. Wilfried Thuiller.
