Research Interests

My research focuses on 19th-century Southern Chile, more specifically, the Chiloé and Northern Patagonia regions. I am interested in environmental history and ethnohistory methods as a way to approach changes in the social, cultural, and economic practices of local and indigenous communities in the wider context of the transition from the late colonial to the national period.
