I also worked as a consultant for Peru´s Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (MIDIS) on strengthening of the MIDIS´s social programs management and articulation. Among my main interests are public administration, strategic planning, design and management of social projects, and the social and economic development in rural areas, particularly in the Amazon region.
