My research focuses on the conservation and restoration of species interactions in tropical terrestrial ecosystems. I am currently working in rainforests in Brazil and Costa Rica, studying how communities and plant-animal interactions reassemble through restoration and trophic rewilding. Before coming to Stanford, I've worked in the reintroduction of howler monkeys (Alouatta guariba) to Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), and I've looked at their effects on species interactions. I am very passionate about hands-on conservation!
