I’ve always been into Evolutionary Biology and Paleobiology, although I’ve never been truly touched until I got the chance to work at a museum of natural science. Thus, I decided to aim at the field of Evolution, looking for figure out the great diversification processes throughout the history. Crazy in love with dinosaurs, I held on to the “small” group of nowadays’ representatives: birds. These creatures turned out to be very attractive for drawing an interdisciplinary landscape between biological and ecological aspects. Now, as a PhD candidate, I study the morphological diversity in the family Tyrannidae (Aves) with the goal of understanding the evolution of the shape of the tails of the species within the group. In order to achieve this, I’m taking into account phylogenetic, ecological and behavioral aspects.
