Research Interests

I'm a physical anthropologist and Ph.D. student at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, affiliated with the Anthropology program from the Universidad de Tarapacá- Universidad Católica del Norte in Chile. My research involves the analysis of nutritional status and diet with stable isotopes in prehistoric populations.

My main areas of interest are growth and development, nutrition, diet, mobility and paleopathology of ancient human populations. I have focused my research on the bioarchaeology of ancient groups from northern Chile, where I currently work in several bioarchaeological research projects. I am also member of the Colegio de Arqueólogos de Chile and Associate Director of the Sociedad Chilena de Antropología Biológica (SOCHIAB).
