Postdoctoral scholar, Research School of Biology, Australian National University

Rosa Agudo did his undergraduate on Biology at the Complutense University in Madrid, Spain (1996-2001). She started her research activity at the University of Tromso (Norway), where she did her honors within a project assessing the impact of persistent pollutants in artic species. On 2005 she started her PhD at the Donana Biological Station (EBD-CSIC) in Seville and focused her research on conservation genetic on insular population, particularly of long lived species. She defended her thesis in 2011. At present, she is a postdoc at the Australian National University and her current research interest is the study of adaptive evolution of lizards to climatically variable environments, with particular interest on the adaptation to potential climatic refugia.
