Hi! I am a PhD Candidate in Eric Lambin's Land Change Lab and I'm interested in policies and governance mechanisms of land use. More specifically, I investigate if and how certain governance approaches can help to reduce the negative impacts of land use in the tropics while encouraging sustainable and fair use of natural resources. To address my research questions, I use multiple methods, including literature and document review, remote sensing, and modeling.
