Rebeca graduated from the Bachelor of Biology at the National University of La Plata, Argentina, where I obtained some scholarships and received honors for my academic score. Since the beginning of my professional education, I have been interested in the ecology and conservation of mammals. Currently, I am doing a Master's degree at the Ecology Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico under the supervision of Dr. Gerardo Ceballos. My research is on the different components of the diversity of mammals from the tropical dry forests of Mexico. The main aim is to analyze and identify the priority areas to be conserved for those species. I look forward to my research gives rise to public policies directed at preserving nature.
