Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in human-nature relationships occurring in the face of environmental change. My PhD research focused on risk assessment, management and public perceptions of invasive alien species. In my current positions, I investigate stakeholder involvement in monitoring and evaluation, relationships between place-based values and public perceptions of natural environments, and the role of communication in environmental management. Recently, I obtained a second MSc degree in Communication for Development (2019) extending my research interests into social sciences and the Global South.
