I have directed more than 30 thesis in undergraduate, master and doctoral students. Therefore, I have participated in approximately 8 courses. Four of them I am currently participating: the field course Forest Ecoloy and Biodiversity, a field course carried out anually in Senda Darwin Biological Station (Chiloé, Chile) in collaboration with Senda Darwin Foundation; the course Biogeography of Chile, which is made in collaboration with Professor Carolina Villagrán, and is carried out every two years and; the courses Principles of Ecosystem Ecology, part of the Biology undergraduate degree and the Communities and Ecosystem module, part of the graduate courses carried out in Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Difusión y Transferencia


I have participated in different commissions leaded by the Chilean government in order to help to restore and maintain the Chilean biodiversity. For example, in 2014 I participated in a project with the National Forest Agency (CONAF by its spanich acronym) to restore biodiversity in the burnt Torres del Paine National Park. Currently, I am also a current member of the National Committee on Ecological Restoration created by the Ministry of the Environment, and as partners of Chilean Ministry of Agriculture through formal collaboration agreements with ODEPA (Office of Agrarian Studies and Policies) and CONAF (Chilean Forest Service). The program is part of a plan to restore the native ecosystems after the huge wildfires occurred in the austral summer of 2017 in south-central Chile.

Additionally, I have been part of books in order to introduce people to elements of our native flora and fauna. For that, I have published in collaboration with other researchers books such as "Ecological Botany: a field guide of the woody flora of Chiloe", the book "Ecology, Knowing our own house" or "Water Ecology". The main function of these books is to disseminate the knowledge emerged from academy to the people interested in conserving biodiversity but without a strict formation in the field.
