1982 B.Sc. (Biology), University of Valencia

1987 Ph.D. (Genetics), University of Valencia

Major research interests

My main research interests are in population and evolutionary genetics, molecular and evolutionary epidemiology, molecular systematics and genomics, bioinformatics and conservation biology. I am currently working on the molecular evolutionary epidemiology of different pathogens, mainly RNA viruses, such as hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and bacteria, such as Legionella pneumophila. Our basic approach is the analysis of nucleotide sequence variability at different levels, from intrapatient to world-wide samples, depending on the speficic goals of the different projects.
