Southern Tropical Andes Fellows Program, Cochabamba, Bolivia
Sophia's development research identifies the impacts of the implementation of regulatory standards in hunting activities carried out by indigenous and peasant communities in Pilon Lajas National Park in Bolivia. The methods used in this study correspond to experimental economics and represent progress in implementing these tools in the region. Sophia is an economist graduate from the University of San Simon in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and is starting her graduate studies at the University of Concepcion in Chile. This project was supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
