Born and raised in Ecuador, I grew up experiencing a great variety of landscapes and encountering many living organisms. This life experiences fostered a curiosity which pushed me to study biodiversity as a science. Sadly, I have also experienced close hand how human alterations, un-oriented management and lack of information becomes a risk to biodiversity. With this in mind, my academic goal is not only to understand fundamental patterns in biodiversity but also contribute to local and global conservation efforts.

Currently, I'm a Ph.D. student in Biology with the Community Ecology and Biogeography Lab at Concordia University in Montreal-Canada (PI: J.P. Lessard ). I have a M.Sc. in Ecology and Evolution from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) in The Netherlands where I worked with the Biogeography and Macroecology research group (BIOMAC). I did my B.Sc. in Biology with a minor in Environmental management at San Francisco University of Quito (USFQ) in Ecuador.
