I am an associate professor and researcher at Botany Area of the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemical Engineering at Pablo de Olavide University (Seville, Spain). My main research interests are on systematics and evolution of angiosperms, using multidisciplinar approaches ranging from classic taxonomy to molecular phylogenetics and phylogenomics, estimation of divergence times, cytogenetic and niche evolution, phylo- and biogeographic analyses.
