I’m a tropical ecologist with a strong background in quantitative data analysis. I obtained my biology bachelor’s degree at Universidad Agraria La Molina in Peru. My master’s degree is in Ecology and Biodiversity Conservation from the Universidade Estadual de Santa Cruz in Brazil. My PhD is in Environmental Conservation from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. I studied habitat selection of maned sloths in the Atlantic Forest in Brazil, Andean bears distribution in Peru and I’m currently studying frogs’ movements.
