Kora works independently conducting botanical and ethnobotanical studies. His first research work in ethnobotany was on the vascular flora of the Karukinka park: «Knowledge, use and valorization of the vascular flora of Tierra del Fuego, the example of Karukinka» (2010). At the time, the evaluation of the level of knowledge and appreciation of the native flora among the youth of Porvenir and Punta Arenas allowed the Wildlife Conservation Society to be guided by the development of an environmental education program. Another ethnobotanical work, carried out in San Fabián de Alico, gave birth to the book “Flora cordillerana del Ñuble y sus usos tradicionales” (FONDART Project for the rescue of traditional knowledge on Andean medicinal plants). Lastly, he spends much of his time studying and describing new endemic species with other passionate botanists. These species were discovered in hard-to-reach areas of the San Fabián de Alico mountain range. For example, Rayenia malacurensis , a creeping shrub discovered in Cerro Malalcura and the upper parts of the Bullileo Estuary Valley, critically endangered due to its reduced population and significant threats such as climate change.
