About me

I am an environmental scientist by training but very much feeling as a land-use scientist with interests in geopolitics, socio-environmental conflicts in dynamic landscapes and sustainability.

I study the territorial divergences of trans-national eco-regions in South America and the socio-economic factors that may explain differences in their human-natural systems. I am also interested in understanding the forces of land-use change in agricultural frontiers and how economic, conservation, or zoning policies can influence them now or in the future.

Current Project

  • Understanding differences in land systems and their social-ecological impacts within and across ecoregions in South America (website)
