Dr Leonel Herrera Alsina
During my PhD I worked on how diversification rates change according the evolution of a trait. I also looked into the dynamic of species range expansion and contraction driven by ecological and geographic constraints and how this affects diversification rates. I finished my PhD (November 2019) with the thesis: "Species selection and the spatial distribution of diversity". Besides my interest in evolutionary biology, I have some work on how the morphology of species informs on ecological processes like community assembly and character displacement. Now, I am a research fellow at the University of Aberdeen where I am studying spatial patterns of richness and macroevolution in the Wallacea region.
