Introduction

"Sumergirme bajo el agua y ver como las burbujas suben" that’s one of life's pleasures and I feel blessed to call it “job”. As I like to discover the history behind facts, I am interested in evolutionary biology and I’ll focus on coral reef fauna of the Red Sea. I earned a B.Sc. in Biology at the University of Valley (Colombia), where I worked on fish and human ecology, and on population genetics of cats. I am passionate about world literature, writing and arts. Also, I am B.A. in history.
