Domaines de recherches et intérêts scientifiques
Évolution des plantes à fleurs avec un intérêt particulier pour la systématique moléculaire, la biogéographie historique, la spéciation, la diversification florale et les relations plantes-pollinisateurs.
Dans mes études, je m’efforce d’intégrer des approches phylogénétiques dans les domaines de la biologie comparative et de la biogéographie pour comprendre les mécanismes évolutifs à l’origine de la diversité des plantes. Mes sujets de recherches concernent principalement les plantes d’Amérique tropicale dans les familles Gesneriaceae et Arecaceae (palmiers).

Research area and scientific interests
Flowering plant evolution with emphasis on molecular systematics, historical biogeography, speciation, flower diversification and plant-pollinator interactions.
I am particularly interested in using phylogenetic-based approaches in the fields of comparative biology and biogeography to understand the evolution of plant diversity and the ecological/geographical factors associated to it. Most of my research is focused on the plant families Gesneriaceae and Arecaceae (palms) in Tropical America.
