She writes on transgressive issues, subversive movements and the resistance of native peoples in defence of their territories. She is the author of five books and her work has been translated into French, Italian and German. She has been awarded the National Prize for Journalism and the Latin American Prize for Investigative Journalism awarded by the Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (IPyS) based in Peru.
