Personal Summary

I am currently collaborating with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game studying predator/prey dynamics in northern Idaho. I received my M.S. from the Colegio de Postgraduados in San Luis Potosí, Mexico in Innovation in Natural Resource Management. In a dry-tropical region of the Huasteca Potosina, I analyzed land use changes over the past thirty years and compared these findings with the movements of two collared jaguars and cattle ranching practices surrounding a small national protected area. I am passionate about wild mammals and working with the public.
