Research Interests: 

I am student in the Gradaute Interdisciplinary Program of Arid Lands Resource Science subscribed to the Minor of Global Change where I have found and excellent framework to analyze the importance of the human development footprint on the planet and the architecture along with its effect on global warming and energy consumption.

My proposed research is about the participatory housing adaptive process that can contribute to the solution of the harmful effects of dust indoors by comparing different process of adaptation in two different realities that happen in the region of Douglas (Arizona) – Agua Prieta (Sonora)and with it, impulse participatory design of architecture as way to adapt housing to Global Change, population growth, and other development
