Ph.D. student

I am a land system scientist working at the intersection of social proccesses and environmental change. Specifically, I am interested in how land use – as the key link between humans and the environment, and as a manifestation of society, culture, economy and politics – shapes challenges and opportunities to conservation in the world’s tropical dry forests. With a background in geography, my work relies mainly on spatial data analysis and advanced statistical modelling, whereby I strive to integrate views across and beyond disciplinary fields. Through the years, I have become particularly intrigued by perspectives from Science and Technology Studies and Political Ecology.
