I am a Biologist from Colombia doing my PhD in the GDPE Program at CSU in the Stream Ecology Lab with Dr. LeRoy Poff.  I am interested in studying  ecological traits in stream communities, particularly how trophic networks are built in aquatic ecosystems. I also want to find out how latitude, elevation and climate change affect this structure, and how this all relate to functional diversity in the community. I am fortunate to be part of the EVOTRAC (Evolutionary and Ecological Variability in Organismal Trait Response with Altitude and Climate) project because from someone coming from the tropics EVOTRAC presents a unique opportunity to learn about stream ecology research in temperate vs. tropical studies and do collaborative research.
