In a nutshell:
The Caribbean islands have a very complex geological history, which sets a remarkable stage to study biogeographic and evolutionary patterns in the animals and plants that inhabit this archipelago. My research focuses on developing computerized genetic and distribution models to answer questions on the origin, colonization, movement, distribution, extinction, and genetic variation and structure of Caribbean bats.
