a marine biologist specialist in elasmobranch function-anatomy. I hold a Ph.D. in Biology, with the specialisation in Zoology, a M.S. in Diversity and Evolution and a B.S. in Marine Sciences. Currently, I am a postdoc fellow at the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary biology of Harvard University, working in George Lauder's lab.  


My research interests are based on how marine animals have adapted to different habitats, especially those that exhibit exceptional structures and functions.  

My research experience is based on characterizing the biological functions (e.g. sensorial, mechanical, locomotion) of different body structures of sharks and rays by using a combination of high tech techniques based on material characterization, 2D and 3D imaging and analysis.  For more info check my CV
