Apart from my sincere admiration for the diversity and beauty of Lepidoptera, my main research interests encompass the ecology and evolution of moths, specifically their interactions with flowers. My current field program includes the northern Andean Páramo region of Colombia and the Island of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean. Overall, I seek to explore the life history and evolutionary processes that shape moth and flower interactions in high altitude environments.
I am a PhD Student of Biology under the direction of Dr. James Ackerman at the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras (UPRRP). I also work as Collections Manager at the UPRRP Zoology Museum.
