About

Born in Santiago Chile. After take undergraduate studies in Social Anthropology and Physical Anthropology, I completed my PhD in Anthropology at UCL, about Lactose Intolerance and Milking among goat breeders in the "Agricultural Communities" from the Chilean semi-arid region. Now I am researching changes in norms of land tenure in pastoralist communities and working as lecturer at the Universidad de Tarapacá in Arica, Chile.
