My studies started with a Bsc. in Applied Ecology and a second Bsc. in Biology at Universidad San Francisco de Quito (Ecuador), focusing on animal and forest ecology in Yausni National Park. Later on, I took part of an international exchange program, studying the effects of climate change on Australian wildlife and flora at the University of the Sunshine Coast (Australia). After a few years I earned my Msc. in Biology at Wageningen University (the Netherlands), for this I quantified the "The Environmental Impact of Humans on Yasuni National Park".
Regarding my professional career, I worked for two years as a high school teacher and two years in the Presidency of Ecuador, coordinating the environmental management of Yasuni ITT Iniviative.
