research interests are centered on animal ecology,
and more specifically include the following areas:
visual ecology, and
biology, as well as the interactions between them.
My research is
I answer my questions in a comprehensive manner,
using a combination of empirical, theoretical, and comparative
approaches. My model species are usually birds, but I have also
worked with fish, mammals, amphibians, and insects.
I was fortunate to enrich my
education by attending Universities in different parts of the world.
I did my undergraduate, specialized in ecology and biodiversity, at
"Universidad Nacional de Cordoba", Argentina. My Ph.D. was in animal
ecology and conservation biology at "Universidad Complutense de
Madrid", Spain. My two post-docs were focused on behavioral ecology;
the first one at University of Oxford (United Kingdom), and the
second one at University of Minnesota (USA). I was an Assistant
Professor at California State University Long Beach for almost six
years. I am now an Full Professor of Biological Sciences at Purdue
