I am interested in exploring human values and perceptions of nature to find better strategies when planning for conservation. In previous projects I have used ecology theory to investigate soil microfauna interactions with the purpose of developing projects to stop soil erosion in arid ecosystems in North Mexico. As well, I have used anthropological approaches to study the effects that environmental degradation has had on Indigenous people. For that project, I centred my attention in the evolution of the Cucapá Indigenous people’s livelihoods after the colonization of the Colorado River Delta. As a result of my work, I proposed pathways for the successful inclusion of Cucapá people into restoration and poverty alleviation programmes.
