I am currently leading the UNICA project: a Marie Curie Global Fellowship that explores the circularity transition in Latin America, focusing on its socioeconomic and environmental implications for the region and the rest of the world.


My experience comprises R&D in academic and non-academic organizations regarding multiple subjects, such as bioenergy, resource use and sustainability analysis. I obtained a bachelor degree of chemistry from the University of Costa Rica and a master of sustainability from the University of Sydney, Australia. I worked as production supervisor and researcher in a biodiesel company. In addition, I contributed to bioenergy projects and a climate change adaptation program at the University of Costa Rica.
During my masters studies, I specialized on techniques for sustainability analysis and I developed a project at the Centre for Integrated Sustainability Analysis at the University of Sydney, where I focused on the application of global, multiregional input-output analysis on biodiversity studies.

Research Interests

I am interested in the application of industrial ecology tools to address sustainability issues, and to support decision-makers on taking sustainable alternatives. I am also interested in teaching aspects and how to encourage new generations on having a sustainable lifestyle.
