As an environmental scientist, I seek to understand the relationship between nature and people. Thereby, I often use the concept of ecosystem services (nature’s contribution to people) as a narrative.
My work focuses on the integrated assessment and spatial modelling of present and future ecosystem services and biodiversity under different future scenarios. I am especially interested in future developments and how nature can be part of the solutions to address challenges such as climate change, loss of biodiversity and human health. I have experiences and are interested in working in multidisciplinary project teams and have a strong interest in working on the science-policy interface.
In my PhD, I particularly focuses on nature-based solutions for urban sustainability challenges.
