About

I am a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology at Stanford University where my academic advisor is Dr. William H. Durham. I am also a graduate student researcher in Gregory Asner’s lab in the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Ecology at Stanford University. I graduated as a Forest Engineer from La Molina University in Lima, Peru and obtained my MA in Latin American Studies from University of Florida with a concentration in Tropical Conservation and Development. My doctoral interests are in comparing the impacts of development policies, specially road development and land tenure, on small farmers land use and land cover change across the Amazonian tri-national frontier of Bolivia, Brazil and Peru. I have conducted research on social-economic and environmental consequences of eco-tourism in Costa Rica and continue to remain involved in forest ecology projects, including investigating nutrient cycling issues following slash/burn agriculture in the Amazon and microclimate and physiology of tropical forests in Hawaii.
