I graduated from the bachelor's degree by doing a thesis on animal behavior, I studied the predator-prey relationship between two crustaceans in two dimensions. Following I did my Master listing species of all the echinoderms of the reefs and coasts of the state of Yucatan in the transition zone between the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, at the same time I analyzed the ecological and biogeographic data of all that information. I graduated with honors. I am currently conducting my PhD research on phylogeography and an analysis of the morphological phylogeny of a widely distributed ophiuroid species in the American Western Atlantic.
