My research focuses on two major fields of evolutionary genomics. I am interested in the role of transposable elements in genome evolution, their population dynamics and adaptive significance. I am also interested in chromosome evolution, specifically in the rates and patterns of chromosomal rearrangements and mechanisms that generate them. For details on my projects visit the Research page and for a listing of my articles the Publications page.

I graduated from Universitat Autonòma de Barcelona were I was a PhD student at Dr. Alfredo Ruiz lab. I continued my research in the same lab as a postdoctoral fellow for three years and in September 2005 I moved to Dmitri Petrov lab at Stanford University. I am currently a Research Associate at Stanford. My CV can be found here.
