I am an enthusiastic young researcher born in Alicante, a coastal town in south-east Spain. My backgrounds are experimental ecology from my Bachelor’s degree and population & quantitative genetics from my Master’s degree. I recently started my Ph.D., which endeavors on climate adaptation and evolutionary rates in Arabidopsis thaliana.
