Research Interests

1) Neogene Paleoecology and plant biogeography;
2) High resolution biostratigraphy as application of Graphic Correlation, CONOP and RASC methods to interpret palynological events;
3) Palynology of fossiliferous outcrops in Acre and Amazonas, Brazil, using quantitative stratigraphy methods.

Current Research

I am studying the Miocene History of the Northwestern part of South America. During the Miocene, the Eastern Andes Uplifted may have played an important role in species diversification via relief and depositional environment changes.

We are doing a detailed palynological analysis of the Llanos foothills in Colombia and Brazilian Amazon. We use these data to reconstruct the Miocene palynoflora and understand how plant distribution and diversity were modified by environmental changes.

This Information will allow us to understand origin and maintenance of high diversity found in Northwestern of the South America.
