Dr Julián Velasco

Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico (UNAM)
Julián is a full researcher at the Institute for Atmospheric Sciences and Climate Change at UNAM. He was born in Colombia, where he spent most of my life, but has lived in Mexico for the last 12 years. Julián migrated to Mexico to pursue a PhD at UNAM. He is passionate about amphibians and reptiles, particularly Anolis lizards, which motivates him to evaluate the impacts of climate change on biodiversity in general. His research aims to understand how current and past climate dynamics shape biodiversity, including phenotypic diversity, at several spatial scales and how future climate change scenarios might distort these geographical patterns.
