My background combines formal education in the natural sciences and the humanities. I was initially trained in biology and worked a few years in the environmental field, which allowed me to trace the evolution of environmental actions in Latin America over time. My teaching is often interdisciplinary and framed under sustainability as an emerging paradigm. I have also piloted and integrated the use of technology as a pedagogical and presentational tool.
In my work I endeavor to bring together the worldviews of science and humanities through teaching, technology, transdisciplinary research and mentoring. The context for my work is sustainability and human natures, in the multicultural landscape of Latin America. I draw from diverse fields including literature and plastic arts; geography and discourse analysis, to enable students to see the connections and interactions of social and cultural life within their environments and those of others. Pedagogically, I employ a diverse range of approaches and integrate digital humanities. I approach teaching as s journey of constant inquiry and view interdisciplinarity as a means to re-enable the connections that have often been fractioned in our scholarly models.
