PBI Role:
Taxonomic revision of the South American genus Orchestina, fieldwork, monography.
Professional Experience:
I am a graduate biologist of the National University of Córdoba, Argentina. My graduation thesis, under the direction of Martín Ramirez, was the description of two new species of the genera Aysenia and Aysenoides (Anyphaenidae) of Chile and Argentina with a small phylogenethic analysis that included these species and the rest of Amaurobioidinae. At the same time, I collaborated with the ATOL project preparing the especimens and taking images mostly with SEM. At the moment, I work in the revision of the genus Orchestina in South America. Also a cladistic analysis with morphological and molecular characters will be done. I am also interested in the whole subfamiy Dysderoidea trying to understand the evolution of the female genitalia and their possible functions.
