Research Interests

I am interested in the historical and current factors that modify biological diversity and determine its distribution patterns. I am also interested in the natural history and evolution of bird life histories with respect to their breeding biology.

Current Research Project

Assessment of the genetic variability among and within the remnant populations of the Mexican endemic Sierra Madre Sparrow and of its current distribution, with the aim to facilitate the development of adequate conservation plans for this endangered species.
