Research Interests

Currently I am focused around better understanding small-scale illegal fishing. 

My research so far has been concentrated on ways to estimate illegal fishing activity empirically and to understand possible drivers of non-compliance.

The illegal fishing problem is very extended in Chile, and results from our investigations show that for some species the illegal catch is 2 to 3 times the legal catch.

Finding solutions for this crisis is imperative in order to conserve Chile’s costal ocean and fisheries
