I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in the evolution of phenotypic diversity. I combine quantitative analytical tools, field observations and experimental approaches to investigate the proximate and evolutionary mechanisms that drive of phenotypic diversification at different temporal and spatial scales. I use reptiles and amphibians as model organisms, and combine tools like geometric morphometrics, multivariate statistics, and phylogenetic comparative methods to provide a better understanding of the links between morphology, ecology, and selection, and decipher the evolutionary meaning of diversity at the micro- and macro-evolutionary scale. In addition to empirical research, I am interested in theoretical studies of quantitative methods and tools for quantifying phenotypic diversity.
