Research Overview

I'm a biologist and have worked extensively with indigenous peoples in the Colombian and Brazilian Amazon. My work includes identifying plant species and their uses (e.g. for the prevention and treatment of malaria, food plants and agriculture). My current interest is focused on the knowledge of "isolated" indigenous groups in Colombia, including the identification of groups and threats to their survival.
