Bio

My broader research interests include science and technology, the environment, and indigenous labor in colonial Latin America. I am currently working on my dissertation project about the environmental transformation and study of the Andean landscape during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. I completed my B.A. at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú where I received a research award to investigate the rebellion of encomenderos in the Viceroyalty of Peru (1544-1548).
