Research Gate:


My research has resulted in 16 scientific articles, all published in prestigious international journals included in the Science Citation Index (SCI) from generalist areas such as Scientific Reports (an open-access journal of the editorial group of the Nature journal) to specific areas such as General Biology (PLoS One), Parasitology (Parasites & Vectors) and Epidemiology (Epidemiology & Infection), among others. In addition, I am author of 7 popular science articles in national magazines, including the journals 'Investigacion y Ciencia' and 'Quercus'. In addition, I must emphasize that my works have received more than 185 citations (index h = 8, index i10 = 5, Google Scholar) which supports the novelty and international relevance of my studies.
