I am gay and I am a post-doctoral researcher.//

I am a proud gay working on taxonomy and systematics of Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) using morphology and molecular tools to understand the evolutionary history, phenotypic variability, and to describe diversity using integrative taxonomy approach. I was raised in a very Catholic family and I’ve been in the closet for many years, unti I entered university. During biology undergraduation I could see the diversity in its different forms, which helped to accept me as I am and realize that love comes in different ways and shapes.
