Alejandra is a PhD student at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) where she studies the effects of hydric stress on species coexistence in a semiarid grassland. She discovered her love of nature as a little girl going on walks with her grandmother. This love of nature only grew stronger after each field trip from elementary school up to her first years at the university. Nowadays she focuses on understanding nature using statistics and mathematical models.
Alejandra is also passionate about grassland conservation. She also enjoys live music (especially rock), reading, cooking, eating all kinds of food, walking with her dog, and of course hiking and exploring nature.
