Biography

I am a Brazilian-Mexican committed to supporting policymaking and resources management decisions with a strong interdisciplinary science. As part of The Changing Ocean Research Unit (CHORU) I’m particularly interested on how climate change will impact fish biodiversity in Latin America and how to mitigate the socio-economic implications. My projects and emerging professional directions look to understand how impacts of environmental change affect social structures, such as food security and local economies, how they can be measured, and how to create social adaptive capacity to such changes.
