& Projects

What I do

I use an applied and participatory research approach, having experience designing, evaluating, and implementing public policies and government programs.


Experience designing and implementing data collection instruments such as surveys, interviews, and focus groups, among others, for various project sizes.


To understand issues of collective action, governance, and decision-making, I investigate the intricate interplay of rules, actors, and outcomes in various contexts.


I investigate the effects of relationships between people, ecosystem services, and the environment from a social-ecological network perspective, with a focus on the impact on sustainability and resilience.
