I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Biological Science at the National University of the Peruvian Amazon (UNAP); and my Graduate Diploma on High Amazonian Studies from The Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP). My professional experience includes service as a Specialist on Protected Areas for the “Peru Bosques” – USAID/Peru Project; Specialist on conservation and ecotourism concessions for the Ministry of Agriculture. Recently, I conducted the project: “Developing Communal Monitoring Strategies through Community-Based Tourism in the Peruvian Amazon”, funded by the Rufford Foundation. I am currently part of the Governance and Infrastructure in the Amazon – GIA Project. For my dissertation research, I investigate the relationship between conservation and tourism in the Amazon via analysis of social capital and networks and conceptual approaches to community-based tourism.
