Biography

After my bachelor studies in Biology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (2015), I went on to complete an MSc in Biological Anthropology at the University of Barcelona (2017). I relocated to Kenya in 2017, and began work with the Turkana Basin Institute as the Resident Academic Director for the institute´s Origins Field School (2018-2019). I am now pursuing a PhD in Biological Anthropology funded by the Cambridge Trust and CONACYT, and intend to continue pursuing research interests across Eastern and Southern Africa.  

 

Research

My research interests centre on the evolutionary history of Plio-Pleistocene hominins, with a focus on ‘robust’ australopithecines.

My PhD research leverages a combination of high-resolution imaging, landmark-based geometric morphometrics, and developmentally informed selection of characters, to evaluate the competing phylogenetic and evolutionary hypotheses regarding this hominin group.
