Bio: I earned my PhD in 2005 from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), under the direction of Dr. Joaquín Cifuentes Blanco, at the FCME Herbaria. I have been teaching at UNAM since 1999, in the subjects of fungal biology and systematics.
Research interests: My main interest and background are in the systematics of fungi, classic taxonomy and phylogenetics, with most of my experience in phylogeny of clavarioid fungi using morphological characters. Also with experience on biogeographic analysis of fungal distributions in México. Besides mycology my interests also include phylogenetics theory.
