I seek to understand how the environment interacts with evolving phenotypes to determine where species can live, and the consequences of such interaction over different organizational levels of nature (i.e. individuals' phenotypes, population abundance, species' range size, community richness, etc). Lately, I have been focusing on using that understanding for developing a new approach for forecasting species' vulnerability to climate change. Even thought most of my work focuses on lizards, I enjoy working with other organisms too. I use an array of approaches including field studies, laboratory experiments, museum data collection, geographic modelling and videogames. Finally, I teach courses on Project Design, The Scientific Method in Comparative Biology, Phylogenetic Statistics, and Functional Biogeography.
