Ecology of Invasive Species and Biosphere Reserves

I am a terrestrial biologist with a decade of research experience in southern Chile. My main research interests are vulnerable and invasive mammals, their monitoring, population ecology, and conservation. I am combining biological methods with social approaches to be able to understand the human-wildlife context in an integrative way. I am familiar with camera-trapping, radio-telemetry and GPS tagging, capture-recapture methods, sign surveys, dietary analysis, qualitative and quantitative social approaches, as well as workshops and the elaboration of environmental education material.
