About MeMy research interests span from landscape ecology and biodiversity conservation to connecting science with policy and practice. I am currently working on the impacts of human pressure on habitat fragmentation and its relation to species extinction risk at a global scale. In my previous position, I worked as a senior researcher on forest degradation monitoring with remote sensing and field data for the National Forest and Carbon Monitoring System of Colombia. During my masters, I focused my research on deforestation and fragmentation of seasonal tropical forest in the southern Yucatán, Mexico. I am passionate about using tools that help us better understand the human-environmental relationships affecting biodiversity patterns and ecological processes, and really hope to provide information in a form that is useful to policymakers and practitioners.
