About the Author(s)


Natalia is a researcher for CONICET (Argentina’s National Research Council), working at the Ornithology Division of the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales (Buenos Aires, Argentina). She first joined the Museum’s Ornithology Division to do her undergrad thesis and stayed there to get her Ph.D., after becoming fascinated by birds and museum collections. She then did a postdoc at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, to study the genetic basis of vocal variation. During her time there, she used the collections of the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates and Birds of the World to teach an undergrad course about global avian diversity. She is mainly interested in the evolution of acoustic and visual communication in birds, and how these can be used to understand speciation and improve species classification.
