I am passionate for the study of the environment. Particularly I am interested about the relation between humans and nature, what we call social-ecological systems.
My first approach to conservation biology and particularly, with management of natural resources, was with fishing communities, intending to understand human impact on open-access coastal areas.
I also started to research forest ecosystems, investigating collective actions of local communities in the southern part of Chile.
Now I am developing a project in order to understand the impact of human practices in a territory where an important city in southern Chile extracts water for human consumption.
Further, I have been involved in the research on regeneration patterns in Chilean mediterranean ecosystems through the first phase of this rewilding experiment with Guanacos.
