Research Interests

My research seeks to understand the drivers and consequences of social-ecological interactions and its various implications on sustainability, mainly on ecosystem services flows and on equity in the access to those services. In particular, I investigate the effect of land use intensification on the relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem services, on the synergies and trade-offs between services, and on the social relationships between actors. I analyse these relationships at multiple spatial scales and model social-ecological scenarios to inform land management and restoration policies.
