I am broadly interested in Systematics, Biogeography and Evolution of Neotropical butterflies. Currently, my research focuses on the systematics and biogeography of the high diverse genus Catasticta Butler, 1870. 
    Since childhood, I have been especially captivated by the small organisms that at first glance seem insignificant but which turn out to be complex and interesting.  I have always enjoyed contact with nature, and during my career I have had the opportunity to visit different places and I have witnessed the extraordinary diversity that our planet holds. These experiences sparked in me the necessity to share what my eyes have seen, therefore 5 years ago I began to learn photography and through this I hope to share with others the amazing organisms and places that I've seen.

  My initial foray into a Brazilian rainforest made an impression that lasted the rest of my life. I felt like a blind man who was given his sight and was seeing for the first time
