Hello! My name is Isabel Caballero and I am currently a post-doc at Texas A&M University. I earned my PhD degree from University of Illinois at Chicago and my bachelor degree from the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina. I discovered the world of birds (and raptors!) while volunteering at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. I have a broad interest in molecular ecology. In my doctoral and post-doctoral work, I use microsatellite markers to investigate, mating systems, inbreeding, gene flow, long-distance migration and dispersal in avian and parasite wild populations.
