I am a PhD candidate in the Environmental Science Program at the University of Idaho. After earning my BS degree in 2002 in aquaculture from San Carlos University in Guatemala I came to the University of Idaho to start my Master’s degree program as a Fulbright scholar. My primary areas of interest are environmental and natural resources sustainability, entrepreneurship activities focused on environmental and social responsibility, and community development. My dissertation is focused on tools to evaluate socio-economic and environmental sustainability in animal production systems. Since 2009 I have worked with UI International Programs delivering training programs for international students and community leaders in social and environmental entrepreneurship, teamwork and leadership, watershed restoration, community development, and US culture as a part of the Central American Youth Ambassador Program (CAYA) and the Scholarships for Educational and Economic Development (SEED) in collaboration with Georgetown University and the US Department of State.
