About me

I am Biologist interested in mammal ecology and conservation. I have extensive field experience working in the tropics. Recently I moved from Ecuador were I was working in a vertebrate inventory project, to Colombia. I enjoy learning about R and computers. I am also an avid photographer.


I work for TNC as biodiversity specialist, and occasionally as professional-services consultant, with a focus on strategic matters around ecology and biodiversity conservation. I am especially interested in helping companies, organizations and governments to make science and data based decisions.

Most recently, I have been working on monitoring wildlife using bioacustics, occupancy modeling and understanding deforestation by applying Bayesian statistics. This is also the focus of my consulting practice.

This site hosts my blog, a description of my research interests, social media links and other things I use to spend my time.
