I am a molecular ecologist and evolutionary biologist utilizing genetic/genomic resources. After my PhD dissertation in 2009, I have enjoyed three postdoctoral positions in Spain, U.S.A., and Denmark. As a result, I have participated and collaborated in a variety of international projects (Spain, U.S.A., Belgium, Denmark, U.K.), which has allowed to integrate and transfer knowledge from/for both North American and European research groups. Using new molecular technologies, physiological and microcosm/room experiments on three model systems (the brine shrimp Artemia; the water flea Daphnia; and the fruit fly Drosophila), I have investigated local endemism, population adaptation, and genotype by environment interaction with special focus on inbreeding. I have published 37 SCI research papers in more than 25 different journals, which have received more than 970 citations (WoS h-Index = 17).
