Aurelio Malo is a broadly trained evolutionary ecologist interested on how evolution has shaped phenotypic and life-history traits in mammals. His research lies at the interface of ecology, behaviour, physiology, and genetics, and at the individual and population levels. He focuses on identifying the drivers and fitness consequences of phenotypic traits and inbreeding. He runs long-term field studies on rodents, recording phenotypic trait variation and individual life trajectories, to understand the population-level consequences of such variation. He is currently a Lecturer at the University of Alcalá, where he heads GloCEE - Global Change Ecology and Evolution research group. He also holds an Honorary Lecturer position at Imperial College London, where he set up and runs the Mouse Project at Silwood Park.
