I am a Peruvian field biologist passionate about animal behavior, biodiversity conservation, the tropics and frogs. I am broadly interested in understanding the evolutionary consequences of climate change and anthropogenic disturbances on species’ reproductive success. Using poison frogs as my model species, I aim to study the mechanisms underlying the diversification of reproductive strategies and how these evolutionary adaptations will respond to rapidly changing environments. With my studies, I am hoping to gather information that can be used to guide amphibians’ conservation efforts.
I also love music, dancing salsa and bachata, watching scary movies, climbing trees and exploring new places.
