I am a Civil Engineer; I obtained my bachelor and master degree from Federico Santa Maria University in Chile. I was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to pursue doctoral studies in the Construction Engineering and Project Management program at The University of Texas at Austin in 2015. Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate, and my research interests are construction engineering and project management, water infrastructure management, and human interaction with infrastructure systems. Specifically, I am working on the perceived impact of displaced persons on German infrastructure, whether perceptions toward conservation match conservation behaviors, and the interaction between informal communities and water and wastewater infrastructure services.
