I am deeply motivated towards sustainable forest management based on multi-criteria decision making. My research looks to advance knowledge about carbon cycling in forests and how specific aboveground-belowground interactions shape fluxes and carbon reservoirs.

I am a Fulbright grantee from Argentina, where I worked 3 years in long-term management experiments in Patagonian native woodlands. Specifically, the objective of these experiments was to assess the impacts of thinning gradients and NPK fertilization in multiple ecosystem service delivery, for different mountain landscapes. My dissertation examines how silvicultural practices modify aboveground vegetation and productivity which impacts mesofauna communities' structure and their functional role in carbon cycling.
