Greetings!

My name is Pablo Alvarado, I am the creator of ALVALAB. I obtained the BSc degree in Biology at the University of Oviedo, and the PhD degree at the University of Alcalá, where I have been designated Honorific Research Professor.

I am interested in molecular characterization of fungi, especially hypogeous ascomycetes. I've worked with both professional and amateur mycologists, and published in several different spanish and international scientific journals such as:
