I currently hold a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellowship at NOVA University Lisbon (Portugal) and am an Honorary Associate Professor at the University of Exeter (UK). I also work as a freelance consultant, using my skills to design, implement and assess impactful natural resource management and conservation interventions.
I conduct interdisciplinary work at the interface of social and natural science for addressing sustainability challenges, with a focus on better understanding social dimensions of resource use to inform conservation initiatives. I specialize in delivering collaborative research (e.g. with resource users, local and international NGOs, governmental agencies) with on-the-ground impact.
Within my research, I am particularly interested in the application of tools from multiple disciplines to conservation and in developing novel techniques to achieve a better understanding of the dynamics of social-ecological systems. My work focuses on bringing together ecological and social data into unified frameworks, as an essential way of fully understanding and addressing conservation issues.
