I am interested in the ecological and evolutive patterns that define the bacterial Community structure associated to gregarious invertebrates, my first approach to this relationship was in the sea of Cortés when I studied the bacterial community associated to two krill species and to a parasitoid ciliate that was infecting the most abundant krill species, my current research focuses in the patterns that defines the ant-microbiome association across different habitats in México, for that I am using Next-Gen sequencing technologies, I I had the pleasant experience of been a teacher which gave me an interest in the dissemination of science, its philosophy and history.
