My research is mainly focused on the evolution, genetics and biogeography of neotropical amphibians, specifically hylid frogs.  


Currently I’m studying the population genetics of Agalychnis moreletii in Central America and Mexico. 


I am also interested in the description of the skin microbiome of Guatemalan amphibians, and how it can change when wild amphibians are moved into captivity


My previous research has focused on the presence and health of amphibian populations in both Central and South America. As well as the population genetics of Plectrohyla guatemalensis using next generation sequencing.
