Sandra Díaz: a breakthrough for science

Sandra Díaz, the Cordovan biologist, was among the 10 most important scientists in the world. We tell you what his career is about.

Born in Bell Ville, with an admirable academic performance, Sandra Díaz dedicated her life to science, and the world is recognizing her work. She is an initiator of    Conicet  , and co-chaired the United Nations Global Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (Ipbes). She was  chosen by Nature magazine . He was among the top ten in the world. And that's not all. He also received awards this year from the Bunge and Born Foundation.

They are not the first awards Sandra Díaz has for her dedication to the world of science. His work is very important for the preservation of the environment. Sandra Diaz is not just a  biologist and researcher . Sandra Díaz is a key personality for caring for the environment worldwide. His contributions to science changed the conceptions of the connection between  human being and nature . This had positive consequences in different areas.

As a biologist and researcher at Conicet, Sandra is dedicated to the study of the impact of global environmental change on the regional biodiversity of  plant ecosystems . Its area is  plant ecology and biodiversity . Formed at the National University of Córdoba, today represents Argentina in the scientific and academic field.

Sandra Diaz investigates the development of life in general, through plants and ecosystems. His work combines social dynamics and the natural course of ecosystems. This is an interdisciplinary research that attempts to establish how different societies coexist with ecosystems. Whether caring for them, reconfiguring them, working or abandoning them.

His academic career is admirable. In addition to carrying out her research, she  is a professor at the Faculty of Exact, Physical and Natural Sciences  of the National University of Córdoba. The chair he directs is Ecology of Communities and Ecosystems, his specialty.

 From science to everyday life 

Her role as a researcher is not only an  advance for science . It's a breakthrough for the community. Sandra Díaz consolidates herself as an activist defending public science. As an advocate of the environment in the face of global change. And as a teacher who does not stop offering opportunities to her students, and to the world, to be able to improve. His research leads to awareness about the connection between culture and nature. Between the human being and the natural environment. In her words, what she shows is that “nature does not differentiate us, we are all interconnected with each other and with nature in an inexplicable way.”

In turn, her work as a  committed researcher  is also disseminating. That's why, through awareness, Sandra Díaz calls for change. The biologist says that “we cannot live a full life, a life as we know it, without nature.” He also states: “A new economic model is needed for nature and people.”

His work is very important for the academy and for the world. Sandra Diaz is a flag of struggle and effort. As Argentines, we pride ourselves on having researchers of such caliber.

Thank you, Conicet! Thank you, Sandra!
