My research investigates the processes that have shaped the anatomical diversity of decapod crustaceans through time, via integration of paleontological and neontological approaches. Particularly, I am interested in exceptional preservation of marine faunas from tropical settings, the evolution of novel forms, the phylogenetic relationships among extinct and extant decapods, and their visual systems. I obtained my B.Sc. from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia (2006), my M.Sc. from the Université de Montréal (2012), and my Ph.D. from the University of Alberta (2018). Recently, I have completed a postdoctoral appointment at Yale University, supported by a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Postdoctoral Fellowship.
