Specialist biologist, with interest and professional experience in the creation of strategies for the protection and sustainable use of Biodiversity. Under this perspective, I have oriented my professional career in favor of conservation and sustainable agriculture; I work as a certified adviser in critical conservation sectors such as mining, oil, civil engineering and agriculture (HCV- for sustainability standards in agro-industry). Additionally and as a result of my interest in research in this field, I have proposed, developed and published the results of various research projects.
