Short Biography:

My research interests are related to the genetic-functional relationships that exist between physiological and life-history traits in different biological models. Moreover, I am particularly interested in the understanding of adaptive evolution of physiological traits along environmental gradients and in response to anthropogenetic change such climate change, and ocean acidification. Technically, I focus on the interaction of quantitative genetic (phenotypic level), and molecular approaches (proteomics, transcriptomics, genomics). My research is oriented to explore the potential and limitations of the organisms to respond to natural selection, particularly the trade-offs associated with the allocation of energy in various functions.
