Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Digital Geography Lab, Helsinki Institute for Sustainability Science, University of Helsinki. I am broadly interested in questions related to evaluating the effectiveness of conservation actions. Currently I work on projects attempting to disentangle the many links between funding, governance and ecological outcomes of protected areas. I am also interested in developing new tools and methods for the evaluation of protected area effectiveness.

My background is very interdisciplinary. I did my PhD with the Global Change and Conservation Lab at the Metapopulation Research Centre, University of Helsinki, and has since worked both at Development Studies and as a postdoctoral fellow at HELSUS (University of Helsinki). I have experience of working with both protected area managers and local communities on the ground (Tanzania, Madagascar) and with a diverse set of methods (both quantitative and qualitative).
