I consider myself both a marine scientist and an evolutionary biologist, in brief I am an integrative biologist. My research interests are centered in the interaction between ecology and evolution, particularly of marine modular invertebrates such as octocorals. In addition, I have an increasing interest in marine conservation biology and I have practiced in both systematics and community ecology. I am also a technical (CCR-Trimix) diver and a diving instructor.
