jairo

Jairo Patiño Llorente

Juan de la Cierva Research Fellow (2016-2017), Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellow (2017-2020).

Jairo’s research is focussed on island systems, with a particular interest in bryophytes and the evolutionary and ecological processes that shape patterns of insular diversity. His outgoing host for his MSC fellowship is Rosemary Gillespie, and the University of Berkeley, USA. To find out more about Jairo’s research, click here.

Víctor García Olivares

FPI funded PhD student (2015-2019).

Víctor’s PhD thesis investigates the evolution of one of the most spectacular species radiations in Macaronesia – the weevil genus Laparocerus.

Antonia

Antonia Salces Castellano

FPU funded PhD student (2015-2019).

Antonia’s PhD thesis combines ecological sampling and DNA sequencing for the analysis and understanding of spatial patterns of variation among insular forest arthropod communities.

Dani2

Antonio Pérez Delgado

Self funded PhD student (part time 2015-).

Antonio’s PhD thesis focuses on the community ecology of Coleoptera (beetles) in insular forest environments, and the factors that variation in their community structure.

Daniel Suárez Ramos

MSc student (2018).

Dani's thesis uses a standardised sampling protocol and molecular data to test neutral predictions about spider community assembly.

Nuria

Nuria Macías-Hernández

Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Research Fellow (2016-2019), with Dr Pedro Cardoso (Finnish Museum of Natural History).

Nurias research seeks to understand the evolution and ecology of insular spiders, and her MSC fellowship is in collaboration with our group.
