SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS

————————————Area of scientific activity——————————-

Systematic study of the Upper Ordovician trilobites of the Central-Iberian Zone (Portugal) and Ordovician trilobites from the high-latitude peri-Gondwana Domain. Palaeogeography and biostratigraphy of the Ordovician trilobites. Autoecology and Palaeobiology of trilobites. Stratigraphy of the Ordovician. Geodynamic evolution of the Central-Iberian Zone. Cenozoic Bioerosion. Palaeozoology and palaeoichnology of invertebrates. Apart from the Ordovician and trilobites, I am interested in surviving in general and putting food on the table every day.

DOMAIN OF SPECIALIZATION • During the Geology Degree – Developed knowledge in the area of Paleoichnology, namely Bioerosion of cenozoic biomineralized substrates and the fossil record of the Cenozoic of the Madrid Basin, with special emphasis on taxonomy and paleoecology of rodents (Rodentia, Mammalia).
• During the PhD – Specialization in taxonomy and paleobiology of trilobites, having developed research on the paleoecology and paleobiogeography of this group, inventory of museum collections, geological mapping, stratigraphy and paleogeography of the Ordovician.

CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS
• Palaeontology – Trilobites;
• Invertebrate Palaeontology (Systematics, Paleoecology and Palaeobiogeography);
• Palaeozoic museum collections inventory;
• Palaeoichnology – Bioerosion of biomineralized substrates;
• Stratigraphy;
• Geological mapping;
• Ordovician Palaeogeography;
• GOBE – Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event;
• BODA – Late Ordovician global warming Event;
• Bivalvia record in the Miocene (Cenozoic)
