Gonzalo Giribet, Ph.D.

Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology & Curator of Invertebrates
Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University

Dr. Gonzalo Giribet is interested in the origins and maintenance of animal diversity, especially of invertebrate animals, and uses their morphology and DNA to explain their evolutionary relationships, biogeographic patterns, and population genetics. He received his licenciatura (Spain’s Bachelor of Science Degree) in 1993 and his Ph.D. in 1997, both from the Universitat de Barcelona. He conducted postdoctoral research at the American Museum of Natural History in New York before moving on to Harvard in 2000, becoming a professor there in 2007.
