Eliécer Eduardo Gutiérrez Calcaño


I am currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in Biodiversidade Animal of the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria (hired for the period October 2017 to October 2021) and a Pesquisador Colaborador Pleno of two graduate programs (Ecology, Zoology) of the Universidade de Brasília (since 2016). I am an evolutionary biologist, biogeographer,conservation biologists, and mammalogist, with a Ph.D. degree in Biology (subprogram: Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, and Behavior) from the City University of New York, and postdoctoral experience in biogeography and systematics at the Smithsonian Institution (2012-2015) and Universidade de Brasília (2016-2017). My research focuses on theoretical and applied aspects of biogeography, evolutionary ecology, and systematics to understand patterns of biodiversity, and I use mammals as a study system. I aim to elucidate the factors that drive speciation at local geographic scales, as well as the large-scale events responsible for the diversification of mammals. I am interested in the application of integrative approaches that include ecological niche modeling methods, molecular techniques, and analyses of morphological data to study systematics and biogeography and apply results of my research to the conservation of biodiversity. For my research, I interrogate museum specimens by gathering molecular, morphological, and geographic data to address traditional and non-traditional questions in my fields of expertise. In addition, I am interested on inventory work on poorly studied regions. I am extremely interested in the conservation of biodiversity, and a substantial part of my current research is devoted to this field.
