Munoz Rodriguez
DPhil candidate, Plant Sciences Department

Pablo is a DPhil candidate in the Plant Sciences Department. Before joining the Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP), he worked on systematics of tropical vascular plants, biodiversity conservation and biodiversity data management according to an open-access scheme.

His research is currently focused on the systematics of a group of species in the plant genus Ipomoea (family Convolvulaceae), widely known as "Morning Glories", which includes the sweet potato.  He utilizes morphological and molecular sequence data to address a number of questions concerning the sweet potato and its wild relatives, including sweet potato domestication and the role of other species in its evolution.
