Gabriela comes from the Andes of Ecuador where she earned her bachelor's degree in Agro-industrial engineering. Then, traveled to Cairns-Australia to study a master's program in Natural Resources Management. She is passionate about co-creating organic farming projects that enhance health and resilience in the agroecosystem. Gabriela worked as a full-time lecturer and researcher at her alma mater for five years, teaching Biology, Chemistry, and Crop Science, and participated in research about fungal enzymes. As a Fulbright scholar, she is now interested in investigating the degree to which warm-season cover crop management impacts soil microbial community composition and function.
