About Us


 I am currently a full-time Academic Technician “B”

 I completed my undergraduate studies in Biology at the National School of Professional Studies, Campus Zaragoza of the UNAM and the Masters in Ecology at the Faculty of Sciences also at the UNAM. Since I joined the laboratory in 1991, first as a student and later as an academic, I have carried out several studies in Northern Mexico, specifically on ecology, biodiversity (mammals, amphibians and reptiles), fragmentation and conservation of the black-tailed prairie dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) and on the reintroduction of the black-footed ferret (Mustela nigripes). I am currently participating in a project on new species in Peru, where I am instructor and organizer of the “International Conservation Biology Course”.
