Description of research and teaching

My research addresses specific challenges of conservation and wider sustainability in agricultural landscapes. Their solution calls for interdisciplinary approaches and therefore I strive to bridge ecological knowledge to agronomic realities of farming, the farmer perspective, and existing economic and policy frameworks. I also increasingly work in multi-actor environment engaging various non-academic actors in research and education. Research spans Europe.
