Research areas

My current fields of work are Science Communication and Citizen Science. Using my experience as an ecological modeller, I develop simulation tools and educational software for biodiversity education in the context of Education for Sustainable Development. In the course of the projects I was lucky to meet engaged educators who have been building a powerful network for project development, evaluation and dissemination.
