I am an interdisciplinary researcher with main interests in human-environment interactions and sustainability. My research revolves around topics at the intersection of society and ecosystems, such as biodiversity and wildlife, ecosystem services and disservices, livelihoods and human well-being, and the role of governance in shaping social-ecological system dynamics. Transdisciplinarity, the active involvement of stakeholders, is an important component in my research. 

My current research projects focus on the harmonisation of food security and biodiversity conservation in landscapes in the Global South, and human-wildlife interactions as key sustainability challenges to the sustainability of social-ecological systems.

I started working at the Copernicus Institute, Utrecht University in fall 2018, and will teach in the BSc programme Global Sustainability Science.
