fotorio_frameI am a plant ecologist interested in understanding how plant trait diversity changes across environmental gradients, and how those changes affect ecosystem processes and functions.

I am originally from Colombia, and thus I have always been fascinated by the high biological diversity and complex array of ecological processes in tropical forests, as such much of my research has been conducted in the tropics.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona, where I am focusing on evaluating how community-level traits change across space and time, and how these changes impact primary productivity.
