My research interests comprise the study of human and non-human relations among the Shuar of the ecuadorian Amazon, as well as their conceptualizations of nature in all its physical and metaphysical nuances. Moreover, i am also interested in the study of the relationships that exist between culture and nature in the cultural landscapes and the valorization of this complex heritage by the local communities and tourists.
