María José Carmona
Full Professor of Ecology in the Department of Microbiology and Ecology and researcher in the Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology (ICBiBE) at the University of Valencia (Spain). She is a member of the ICBiBE Evolutionary Ecology Laboratory whose research focuses on evolutionary ecology and population ecology studies with aquatic microorganisms, more specifically on the demographic, genetic, and ecological analysis of zooplankton. Some of their scientific interests include the adaptation of rotifer life cycles to variable environments, processes mediating the coexistence of competing species, population differentiation and speciation, diapause as a dispersal strategy in time and space, and the evolutionary processes that maintain sexual reproduction in populations.

Studying evolution in the face of environmental uncertainty is crucial to understand biological diversity, because diversifying life strategies is key to survival and reproduction in uncertain environments.
