Jorge Ahumada has been the technical director for TEAM since 2006. The recipient of a Ph.D. in ecology and evolutionary biology from Princeton University. Jorge has done field research on neotropical primates in Colombia and Panama and collaborative research on the reproductive strategies of neotropical birds wrens in varying environments. During his tenure at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Colombia, he created the Laboratory of Population Ecology and worked on the reproductive ecology of cloud forest birds and the effects of forest fragmentation on these communities. He has also worked on the impacts of climate change on disease and biodiversity, incorporating the effects of temperature and rainfall on models of disease-transmitting vectors and more recently on the use of camera traps for monitoring vertebrates. He likes the outdoors, cooking, savoring good wine and is a frequent salsa dancer. Learn more.
