Complutense University of Madrid, Spain.
I am a vertebrate paleontologist interested in the ecology and diversity of Neogene mammals and their evolutionary responses to climatic and physiographic changes. I use complementary approaches to learn about the life, death, behavior and habitat of extinct mammals, including macroevolutionary studies, taphonomic analyses and stable isotope analyses of skeletal tissues.
Most of my research is focused on the Neogene mammal record of Spain, which constitutes one of the richest and most continuous Neogene records worldwide. I also had the opportunity to study the Neogene fossil record of mammals from the Siwaliks of Pakistan, another world-class fossil record, during my postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan.
As a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Doñana Biological Station in Seville, I was in charge of the LiveDeadFossil project, a neotaphonomical study of the skeletal remains of modern vertebrates from Doñana National Park.
Currently, I am an assistant professor at the School of Education at the Complutense University of Madrid. I am also a National Geographic Explorer.
