Researcher, Universidad de Chile

My research focuses on the isolation and structural elucidation of secondary metabolites with ethnopharmacological approach, explored the native flora of Chile in search for botanicals with antimicrobial and against insects activities, and examined the fate of plant secondary chemicals in insects. Also, I have researched in the organic chemical analysis of archaeological and bioarchaeological remains involved in the ceremonial practices of prehispanic cultures of Chile.
