I'm a biologist from Universidad San Francisco de Quito, currently getting my master's degree on the program of Tropical Ecology and Conservation in the same college. I'm really interested in montane cloud forest plants, however my thesis is about peatland plants in the highlands haha. My research is primarily based in orchid taxonomy, but I want to expand it towards other poorly known families, as well as try on ecological research and plant conservation. The main groups that I love: Bomarea (Alstroemeriaceae), Porroglossum (Orchidaceae), Renealmia (Zingiberaceae), Centropogon and Burmeistera (Campanulaceae), and the families Ericaceae, Gesneriaceae and Balanophoraceae.

I upload everything on Instagram first :) check my highlights @hablaconlasplantas
