PhD student (IREC, UCLM)

Curriculum Vitae

I´m graduated in Biology by the University of Extremadura, where I also did the Master of Initiation in Scientific Research. During my BSc and MSc, my passion for nature and wildlife led me to collaborate with several research groups. In this way, I spent 4 years collaborating in the fieldwork performed by Dr. Carlos de la Cruz in his studies on cooperative breeding in the Iberian magpie (Cyanopica cooki). In addition, during my last year of Degree studies, I collaborated with Dr. Alfonso Marzal and his team ofn the study of host-parasite interactions, specifically in avian malaria parasites, resulting in my MSc project. Entomology has also occupied much of this interest and I have contributed in this field to extent the knowledge of arthropods of Extremadura, currently focusing on the Iberian systematics of Mutillidae family (Hymenoptera). Likewise, I collaborate with the “Sociedad Extremeña de Zoología” to update of the Amphibian and Reptile Atlas of Extremadura.

I am currently enjoying a Predoctoral Contract from the Research Plan of the University of Castilla-La Mancha at the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC). There I perform my PhD on begging behaviour and family conflicts in the spotless starling under the supervision of Lorenzo Pérez-Rodríguez, Tomás Redondo (EBD-CSIC) and Javier Viñuela (IREC-CSIC).
