My research focuses on the systematics of the plant genus Ipomoea (family Convolvulaceae), commonly known as the morning glories, and on the origin and evolution of its most famous member, the sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.). I also participate in various projects studying the systematics of other groups of tropical plants, as well as have worked on biodiversity conservation and biodiversity data management. I am an active member of several academic societies and I am also involved in several projects of science communication.

Additional notes on Ipomoea (Convolvulaceae) in Bolivia.
109 species of Ipomoea L. are recorded from Bolivia. This total includes six new country records and two species, I. prolifera J. R. I. Wood & Scotland and I. inaccessa J. R. I. Wood & Scotland, which are described as new, while I. jujuyensis O'Donell is excluded having been included previously in error. The little-known I. subalata Hassl. is described in full and compared with I. chondrosepala Hallier f. and other species with which it has been confused. The paper is illustrated with line drawings, photographs and distribution maps of the main species discussed.
