Activity summary

My research interests are focused in studying the effects of human impacts on species and ecosystems, particularly in freshwater ecosystems, which are one of the most endangered in the world. I am also interested in exploring social-ecological systems by addressing how people and the environment interact, and in managing these interactions to change human behaviour and hence slow biodiversity loss.
