I am currently a GGI Buck Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, doing research on the phylogeny of the order Amblypygi, phylogeography of the Atlantic Forest whip spiders, and phylogeny of African spiders. I got a PhD degree in Biodiversity at the Center of Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, University of Copenhagen in 2017, and my research program is focused on biodiversity, systematics and phylogeography of arachnids.
