PhD University of Tennessee (Knoxville), USA, 1988.

I am an ethologist interested in many topics relating to animal behavior. I received a Ph.D. in Ethology from the University of Tennessee in 1988. Since 1996 I am a full-time Associate Professor at the Zoology Department of the University of Valencia in Spain. I am also a member of the Cavanilles Institute of the University of Valencia, where I head the Ethology lab. 

Research interests: I study animal behavior (ethology), with an emphasis on lizard behavior and communication.

Teaching: Ethology (33061), Behavioral Ecology (43244), Herpetology (43237).
