My scope has been in the coast, high Andes and rainforest of Peru and also outside the country. I have worked in several projects directed and managed by myself, several of them with support of funding institutions that deal with research and conservation of birds.

Currently I am studying the role of birds in the pollination network in the high Andes; how nectarivore birds (hummingbirds and flowerpiercers) are keystone species for the ecological integrity of the elfin forest in the western Amazon.

I am member of several Associations of Nature, Bird Research and Conservation; I also have more than 40 papers published in Peruvian and international journals of scientific interest. I was the main author of a new guide to the birds of Lima, Peru.
