Areas of Expertise
- Glacier Environmental Change
I am Bolivian and I am passionate about Andean culture, Alpine ecology, and Environment. My broad goal is to understand the impact that global and climate change has upon the ecosystems and society in the High Andes. While at college, I first focused in environmental quality using plant biomonitoring (BS in Biology), and later in tropical alpine landscapes change, examining the relationships between glacier retreat and the associated downstream wetlands using satellite imagery (BS in Geography). Currently my specific interest is to comprehend the hydrological and environmental roles of the tropical alpine peatlands, or bofedales, in the context of climate and environmental change in the Central Andes of Bolivia.
