Early Career Research Fellow

Biography Plus

My scientific activity embraces mainly lichenology, taxonomy, biodiversity and phylogeny. I have a special interest in taxonomy and phylogeny of the family Cladoniaceae and associated fungi. Cladoniaceae is one of the largest families of lichen-forming fungi. Most of Cladonia species have a high phenotypical variation, what has made it difficult to delimit the diverse taxa by means of morphological characters. During my research, I have focussed my work on species delimitation in the genus Cladonia. For my future research, I intend to understand the Cladoniaceae family more deeply and extend my studies to the genus Pilophorus
