I am a Ph.D. Student working with Steve Gaines and Christopher Costello at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management in UC, Santa Barbara. As a Latin American Fisheries Fellow and UC MEXUS - CONACyT, I work in Quantitative Marine Conservation. My research combines Ecological and Economic theory with Data Science. I believe today’s available technology can allow us to revolutionize the way in which we manage fisheries and do conservation.
I have always felt passionate about the Ocean. Growing up in Playa del Carmen (Mexico) I spent a lot of time in the water. I have been a SCUBA diver since I was 10 years old, and a fisher for as long as I can remember. Aside from my work, I enjoy SCUBA diving, fishing, and sailing. Following what seems to be a tradition in my family, I enjoy cooking a blend of Mexican and Spanish dishes for my close ones.
