Reviewers from University of Oviedo
I studied Biology at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and a MSc in Animal Biodiversity at the University of Barcelona (UB). Currently I am doing my PhD at the University of Oviedo (UO) under the supervision of Prof. Alfredo G. Nicieza.
I am interested in the evolutionary ecology of organisms, with special attention to the amphibian metamorphosis. The evolution, ecology, and physiology of the plastic responses of anuran larvae to environmental factors such as temperature, pond duration, food availability, and larval density are also of great interest to me, as well as the effects that climate change will have on the temperature dependent adaptive responses.
Besides, I find especially exciting how morphological diversity evolves in response to environmental variation. The evolutionary patterns shaping the ecological niche and morphology of species embody a topic that has long attracted my attention.
Prof. José R. VILLAR FLECHA (b. Dominican Republic, October 11, 1967) is Professor of the University of Oviedo, Spain. In 1992 he received the Electronics and Control Engineering degree from University of Oviedo. In 2012, he received his PhD in Computer Science from University of León (Spain). He has worked for several companies, dealing with control and instrumentation projects. From 1998 to 2004 he was with the Electric and Electronic Department of University of León. In 2004, he became a member of the Computer Science Department at University of Oviedo. His research has been published in more than 20 papers on international peer reviewed and indexed journals and more than 80 contributions to international conferences. His current research topics include hybrid techniques for learning fuzzy systems, with application to the fields of energy efficiency and biomedicine.
