Multidisciplinary by training, my research falls at the intersection between natural and social sciences. My broad research interests bring together natural and forest resource management, territorial governance, environmental policies, deliberative-analytical engagement processes, climate change mitigation and adaptation and the socio-economic as well as environmental impacts of the extractive industries. I have worked in many multidisciplinary projects on forestry, conservation, mining and climate change mitigation and adaptation in multiple countries, including Canada, Sweden, Mexico, Honduras, Panama and Japan.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Forest Resources Management and the Social-Ecological Systems Research Group at the University of British Columbia. I hold a PhD from the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability, also from the University of British Columbia, as well as a MSc in Biology from McGill University and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama and a graduate diploma in management and sustainability from HEC Montréal.
