I am a biology graduate from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Cali, Colombia. I wrote my undergraduate thesis on the evolutionary relationship between diet and brain size in phyllostomid bats. I am interested in the macroecology and macroevolution of small mammals, focusing on phyllostomid bats because of their extraordinary trophic diversity. In my master’s degree at INECOL, I want to understand the effect of trophic innovations on variation in diversification rates in phyllostomid species.
