My research focuses in different aspects of arthropod evolution, biogeography and systematics. I am particularly interested in characterizing major patterns of biodiversity within a fascinating group of marine crustaceans, the squat lobsters, as a critical step towards understanding evolutionary patterns across marine ecosystems. Only one third of squat lobsters diversity is currently known, so I work on the taxonomy of the group, describing new species, as an essential task to understand their evolutionary pathways. I pursue to investigate patterns of morphological and molecular evolution over time and the tempo and mode of diversification of squat lobsters from different depths.
