Research Interests

Current Research

My current research focuses in reconstruct fossil fish communities in the Caribbean entrance of the Panama Canal. I want understand through taxonomy, paleobiogeography, geochemical, and paleoecological reconstructions, why large fishes as marlins inhabited the Caribbean coast of Panama 6my ago and how these oceanic fishes and other marine animals, used the Panamanian seaways before the Isthmus closure.
