I am a lawyer, with expertise in environmental law and policy. I hold a Master’s degree in environmental policy from University of Cambridge. My professional career has focused on developing and implementing environmental policies and projects, consulting and developing legal research in the areas of climate change, environmental impact assessment, biodiversity, payment for ecosystem services and gender, including work for both government and non-governmental organizations, including the Ministry of Environment of Peru and international organizations, more recently with UNEP_WCMC and The Biodiversity Consultancy, both based in UK. I coordinated national initiatives such as the National Climate Change and Gender Action Plan (CCGAP), I drafted policy proposals to promote payment for ecosystem services, REDD+, and sustainable development inside protected areas in my home country Peru. In 2015, I was part of "Economic Tools for Conservation" course taught at Stanford University. I am member of the IUCN’s World Commission on Environmental Law.
