I am a Herpetologist and Conservation Biologist that have dedicated more than thirty years to the biodiversity and conservation of tropical ecosystems (especially Andean) and species (mainly amphibians and reptiles). Most of my scientific production is registered at: ResearchGate. My professional interests have taken me to more than twenty countries at four continents.

I retired from lecturing as a Full Professor at the University of Los Andes, but keep doing scientific research at the herpetology collections of this institution and currently concentrating efforts to amphibian biodiversity and conservation.

Additionally to my research interests, my love for the mountains at the ecoregion of the northern Andes lead me to create and manage a website devoted to the Venezuelan Andes. Furthermore, based on this experience and two recent Diplomas, one on Tourism Resource Management and another on Effective Digital Media, I am in the process of consolidating a network called Teleferika, devoted to biodiversity, conservation, and ecotourism in the Venezuelan Andes. When ready, I invite you to take the adventure and enjoy these sites!
