  • Ecology & Conservation

I study Ecology & Conservation Biology at Texas A&M University. I grew up in Texas but have been fortunate enough to spend much of my life in Mexico and Colombia, where my family is from. I’m interested in conservation science, especially using molecular approaches to measure human impacts on organismal communities. My work will inform conservation solutions that thoroughly consider environmental, societal, and economic implications from multiple perspectives. In addition to my passion for conservation science, I enjoy tennis, basketball, Latin dance, and playing the violin.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
