Teresa holds a Bachelor’s degree in Financial Administration and Systems from the University of Guadalajara, Mexico, and a dual Master’s in Science on Technology and Natural Resources Management in the Tropics & Subtropics from TH Cologne, Germany, and the Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, Mexico.

She is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program in Geography with the University of Passau, researching the use of nature-based solutions for disaster risk reduction. She is supporting efforts in coordinating a project aiming to look at solutions to mainstream biodiversity protection into value-chain decision-making by underscoring the importance of ecosystems from the financial, market access, policy, resilience and ecological perspectives. She is also involved in proposal writing, and establishing a network of relevant stakeholders from the private and public sectors in Latin America, decision makers and research institutions.

Teresa has experience in the use of nature-based solutions for disaster risk reduction, background research/desk studies on flood and drought risk and adaptation, the collection of economic asset values, and the processing and analysis of data. She is particularly interested in the role of biodiversity and ecosystem services in disaster risk management and how they can be integrated and quantified to support decisions in adaptation and risk management.
