I am an early career research scientist interested in understanding ecological and evolutionary processes in the marine realm. Using a multidisciplinary approach, which includes taxonomy, systematics, phylogenetics and population genetics, I have explored the association between host and parasites, mainly trematodes and marine mammals. Currently, I am exploring new molecular methods to understand and monitor marine diversity.
