   Biography

I graduated to Engineer in Natural Resources & Environment at Universidad Nacional de La Pampa in 2006. I carried out my degree thesis about Trophic relationships of three raptor birds species with different resident status. Since three years ago I am teaching assistant in Ecology at Universidad Nacional de La Pampa. In 2009 I began the PhD Biology program at Universidad Nacional del Comahue and I received a doctoral fellowship from Agencia Nacional de Promoción Científica y Tecnológica (ANPCyT). My thesis issue is Ecology & Conservation of Crowned Eagle in Central Argentina. I am full member of Centro para el Estudio y Conservación de las Aves Rapaces en Argentina (CECARA) where I conduct different research activities with raptorial birds.
