Irene Villa Machío

Investigadora postdoctoral
Perfil profesional

I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in evolutionary patterns and processes that contribute to plant biodiversity. My research addresses questions related to evolutionary biology using genomic approaches (GBS, RADseq, HybSeq). I conduct multidisciplinary research involving phylogenomics, phylogeography and population genetics studies, as well as demographic and distribution modelling of species, including ecological niche of species.
