Choosing a career was very difficult for me, but when I finally started studying biology at my university I found out that it allows me to answer many of the questions I have about the world that surrounds us, and I fell in love with every part of it.
I believe that only when we humans understand the connection we have with nature we will start taking care of it as it deserves. The study of evolution enables us to understand these connections, and the different evolutionary paths that have given rise to the numerous species that we know today. Also, this allow us to predict how life could have evolved under determined conditions, and we can hypothesize about how life in other planets could be, which is one of my biggest wonders.
I am currently working on my undergraduate degree in biology at Universidad San Francisco de Quito and I decided to study evolution from a molecular perspective with this gecko.
