doctoral/PhD student at Department of Earth Sciences, Natural Resources and Sustainable Development
I am a transdisciplinary researcher with a focus on global change, coastal resource management, ecosystem services, and numerical ecology. I use biogeographical data, socio-economic surveys, and remote sensing technology to explain the current state of coastal ecosystems with the end goal of making sound management decisions. Currently my work and research places me in the tropics and focuses on coastal ecosystems especially seagrass, mangroves, and coral.
