Pedro is a Peruvian Ph.D. candidate at the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre in Frankfurt am Main, Germany; his current research focuses on the evolution of land snails. Pedro is interested in the adaptations that occurred at the genomic level during the sea-to-land transition in mollusks. In addition, he's also a research collaborator at the Museum of Natural History – UNMSM in Lima, Perú. To complete his Ph.D. studies, he received a scholarship from the Peruvian government (CIENCIACTIVA-291-2014-FONDECYT).
