I am a Geologist graduated from the Universidad de Caldas (Colombia) and a PhD geology student at the Universidad de Salamanca (Spain). My main interest is to understand the age and the paleoceanographic setting of marine deposits sedimented in the Caribbean Plate. My research project is dedicated to create a biochronologic framework for marine rocks from the Late Cretaceous to the Pliocene in Pacific and Caribbean basins of Colombia in order to understand the relationship between tectonics and the stratigraphic record. I am the leader of the calcareous nanoplankton group at the Instituto de Investigaciones en Estratigrafía (IIES) of the Universidad de Caldas and I belong to the research group of Investigación en Estratigrafía y Vulcanología (GIEV) Cumanday. Currently, I am a visiting student at Rutgers University and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI).
