Hi, I'm a postdoctoral researcher (contract Angeles Alvariño from Xunta de Galicia) at Universidade de Vigo (Spain).
My main focus is the conservation of genetical resources from a computational point of view, like the study of conservation strategies for the maintenance of genetic diversity in captive populations. I'm also developing software to apply those strategies to real conservation units. Currently, I'm involved in the estimation of effective population size with age-structured populations with overlapping generations. Another hot topic is the evolutionary quantitative genetics. In this topic I study, by computer simulations, the behavior of genetic variance components under several situations, like bottlenecks, epistasis, selection or forced inbreeding.
