I am a biologist broadly interested in ecology, with an emphasis on community ecology, plant-animal interactions, especially pollination and other plant-animal mutualisms, ecological networks, and invasions biology. I am a CONICET Principal Researcher at the Argentine Institute for Dryland Research (IADIZA), in Mendoza, Argentina. I am also an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences of the National University of Cuyo, where I teach Ecology and Conservation biology, and serve as a member of the academic comission of the Doctoral Program in Science and Technology. In addition, I serve as an associate editor of the journals Ecología Austral, Ecology and Ecology Letters, and as a member of IADIZA’s Advisory Board. I am also a proud member of the Argentine Ecological Association, an elected fellow the Ecological Society of America and a corresponding member of the Ecological Society of Chile.

My past history includes being born and growing up in San Fernando, Buenos Aires, Argentina, studing Biology at the University of Buenos Aires, doing a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennesse, Knoxville, and working as a post-doc at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I also spent a sabbatical year as an External Senior Fellow at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS), a wonderful place at the University of Freiburg, Germany.

I like reading, swimming, and hiking in beautiful natural areas. Unlike many of my fellow Argentinians, I am not a football fan. If you want to know even more tedious details about me, check out my publications, my Google Scholar, ORCID and ResearchGate profiles, my CV, or follow me on Twitter. And here’s my contact information, in case you want to get in touch with me:

Network of co-authors of my publications. Each author is represented by a colored circle, with circle diameter and font size proportional to the number of publications of an author; links represent joint participation in a publication. Drawn with VOSviewer with data from Scopus database. See a larger image here. Last update: June 6, 2022.

My research is highly collaborative. Although I have published a few solo papers, most of my publications have been done in close collaboration with colleagues in my group and at many other institutions worldwide, as shown by the word cloud of my co-authors on the right. This social, collaborative aspect of science is to me one of the nicest parts of my job; my research would simply not be possible without the enormous contribution of my many excellent collaborators (see my co-author hall of fame for some pictures).

Below you can find a full list of my publications, including journal papers and book chapters, special issues of journals I have edited, theses, and short commentaries and book reviews.
