Ph.D. student

My background lies in ecology, and my research experience has focused on applying literature synthesis, and both statistical and spatial analyses to understand different global change phenomena such as climate and land use change, as well as species’ invasions. Nowadays, I am interested in interdisciplinary approached to social-ecological research, and increasingly in critical perspectives on human-environment research.

In my PhD, I focus on deforestation frontiers in tropical dry woodlands, understanding deforestation and advancing agricultural frontiers, their impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem services and local livelihoods, and generally understanding how these systems may be governed towards more sustainable pathways.
