My studies as an Oceanologist, graduated from UABC's Marine Sciences Faculty; allowed me to understand the enormous ecological importance of marine and coastal environments, in addition, thanks to the work that I did both in my social service and professional practices, I was able to observe the relationship between users, resources, ecosystem and governance for the application of regulations that promote the participation of all involved. From these experiences in the field my interest in understanding Socio-Ecological Systems (SSE) was born, for this reason I decided to do the Specialty in Environmental Management to understand the joint process of public policies that have the objective of mitigating the environmental impact of the human actions seeking a balance between economic interests and the conservation of ecosystems, in order to achieve sustainable development.


I am currently a graduate student in the Master's Degree in Ecosystem Management in Arid Zones and the thesis project that I am developing aims to identify the relationship between the diversification of economic activities and how it can build resilient coastal communities in the face of environmental, social and environmental changes. In my free time I like to hike with my dogs, swim, read and color mandalas.
