Her research interest in paleoethnobotanical studies gradually turned towards problems surrounding human adaptation and alteration of the landscape as a consequence of resource use and agricultural production and then towards the development of suitable methodologies in an attempt to explore ways of reconstructing past landscapes in order to evaluate change through time. In 1976 she developed the Laboratory of Paleoethnobotany and Paleoenvironment at the Institute for Anthropological Research, National University of Mexico, and has served as coordinator of the laboratory’s activities since then. She taught at the National School of Anthropology and History between 1980-96 and is on the faculty of the Postgraduate Program in Anthropology at the National University of Mexico since 1991, with courses in Ecology, Paleoethnobotany, Origins of agriculture and sedentary communities, GIS, Stratigraphy, Soils in Archaeology and Geoarchaeology.
