Research Interests

Research focus is on Historical Ecology in the Andean region (Inka, Puruwá, Pastos, and Amazonian archaeological cultures of Ecuador). Currently, I am developing my dissertation on the history of space of Colta Lake valley (Chimborazo, Ecuador), in which non-human and humans interact to produce constant changes in the environment.
