About me


With a background in geography, I aim to understand how global environmental change impacts ecosystems, biodiversity, and finally, human wellbeing. To study different phenomena and processes of human societies transforming land systems, my research relies on literature synthesis equally as on spatial data analysis and advanced statistical modelling.

Through the years, I have developed a genuine interest in interdisciplinary, social-ecological research, and have become particularly intrigued by a postnormal conception of science. Therefore, I strive to integrate perspectives across and beyond disciplinary fields for a better understanding of the complex human-environmental systems.
