About me

My main research interest lies in the evolution of form and function in plant lineages through macroevolutionary time.
Plants are arguably the most important component of terrestrial ecosystem, and they had a profound impact not only in the evolution of the earth’s biota, but on the geological and climatological development of the planet itself. Though the fossil record is often thought as an incomplete representation of evolutionary history, and has thus been often marginalized in discussions about the macroevolution of plants, I believe that the integration of fossil data is fundamental to obtain any accurate answer about the evolutionary dynamics of plants through geological time.
