My field of study is primarily focused on pre-Columbian complex societies on the Peruvian coast. My research interest is focused on human-envieroment interactions in pre- Columbian sociesties and the role of environmental studies within archaeological researches. I am particularly interested in how environment and climate affected human agency and vice versa. My proffesional experience include the study of the sociopolitical organization of the Moche and Lima societies. My archaeological work in elite sites is combined with analyses from the household perspective as well as from small settlements looking to understand how common people were related to elites and regional centers.
