I am a theoretical biologists interested in morphological evolution and development. My research focuses mainly in identifying the modular organization of morphological systems, like the head and the limb. And how modularity changes in evolution and during normal and pathological development. I make use of network models, morphospaces, and computer simulations to quantify morphological organization and evaluate morphological complexity, integration, and modularity in an evo-devo context. Last but not least, I am also very interested in the different internal processes that produce evolutionary trends.
