I was born near Santiago (Chile) in 1981 and grew up surrounded by the Andes Mountain Range. Its striking landscapes and our frequent trips to the mountains shaped my view of biodiversity and the sense that humans are inextricably linked components of them. These early experiences made me realize the importance of developing an "ecological and cultural" understanding of the need to integrate the well-being of wildlife and human communities. My cooperative research has stimulated me to take action in the conservation of the unique biological and cultural diversity that Andean landscapes embrace.
