ABOUT ME

My interest in shorebirds arose from the lack of studies and general information about them in Peru.
Today, the risks posed by climate change, plastic pollution, and habitat loss make shorebird populations a key study group in understanding human impacts on the environment.
As a passionate bird scientist, I would like to make a lasting contribution to the conservation of shorebirds and other migrant populations in the Western Hemisphere.

Currently, I am focusing my research efforts on Peru and Canada. In Peru, since 2011, I have led a long-term research project at Paracas National Reserve. In Canada, as part of my post-doctoral research, I am assessing how microplastics affect shorebird migratory propensity.

My research also includes  work on migratory strategies, connectivity, population dynamics and survivorship at staging sites and non-breeding sites.
