I have been teaching since 2000 at the Zoology Department in the Universiy of Granada, Zoology, Vertebrate Biology, Ethology or Evolutionary Biology. I have also participated in several research projects as well as supervised PhD students. My main research interests are the evolutionary causes of variation in animal behaviour, in particular within the field of reproductive strategies, and the ecological and evolutionary consequences of animal interactions. I use molecular markers to answer different questions within the disciplines of behavioral ecology, population genetics and conservation.
