I am a behavioural and evolutionary ecologist. Born in Córdoba (Argentina), I completed my PhD in Biology in the National University of Córdoba. I am interested sexual selection of animal behaviour and ecology in an evolutionary framework. A strong focus in my research is on sexual selection, sexual characters its drivers and consequences. I am also interested in how animals communicate, not only intra specific, as well interspecific. In this context animal signals could be useful as strategies, such as anti predator defense. I often use lizard to investigate those research themes.
Moreover, I love mountains and outdoor activities. All my life I was fascinated by the explorers and even more those who were motivated by scientific questions besides the adventure. They were skeptical and creative. I think these skills are essential for any researcher. I am always motivated to improve and understand our planet, so I am also interested in conservation problems. I approach issues about relationships between species and their environment and how changes affect them.
I am currently working at Lizard Lab, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. http://whitinglab.com (Postdoctoral Endeavour Fellowship)
