Amanda Calvo


I am a biologist, specialized in Botany. My areas of interest are Agroecology, Molecular Biology, Systematics, Conservation Genetics, Population Genetics, and Ecology. I have assisted several Molecular Biology projects, including relationships among and between populations of Caesalpinia spinosa (Molina) Kuntze in Andean Ecuador. My second passion is teaching so I am currently a researcher in didactics and pedagogy at the Instituto Nacional de Aprendizaje, in San José, Costa Rica. I am also a part of Veritas University as a Professor, where I teach Tropical Botany and Agroecology and sustainable Food systems.
