Curriculum vitae

Dalia D'Amato, postdoc researcher

Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science, Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry

My main research interests as a postdoc researcher include the role of the ecosystem services concept and broader sustainability framings such as the planetary boundaries and strong sustainability in informing the management of socio-ecological systems, in further developing sustainability visions and policies (e.g. circular bioeconomy economy) and in engaging the private sector by means of corporate sustainability.

In regard to socio-ecological system, I am interested in the links between ecosystem services and human well-being, in the context of protected areas as well as intensive land use systems such as plantation forestry.

I am also developing a comparative analysis of the green, circular and bioeconomy concepts as sustainability avenues, and their integration and harmonization in guiding sustainability strategies.

In the context of corporate sustainability, I am looking at the internalization in corporate communication and practices of the concepts such as the green, circular and bioeconomy, as well as ecosystem services in land use-intensive sectors.

My teaching activities (2016-2019) have included MSc and PhD-level courses aimed at providing a comprehensive overview of the theory and applications of ecosystem services; and an intensive MSc/PhD-level course comparing green-circular-bioeconomy concepts and strategies.

Before completing my PhD studies in Forest Economics and Marketing at the University of Helsinki (2013-2016), I worked as a researcher and as a trainee at the Finnish Environmental Institute (SYKE) in Finland and at the Institute of European Environmental Policy (IEEP) in Belgium (2012-2013). I have two MSc degrees achieved in the field of ecology from the University of Sussex (UK) and the University of Roma Tre (Italy).
