I am a Senior lecturer at the Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies, Sweden. I hold a Bachelor (BSc) in International Business Administration from the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany and the Ecole Superieure de Commerce in Montpellier, France; and a Masters degree (MSc) in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science from Lund University, Sweden.
From 2009 to 2013 I conducted my PhD research as part of the newly established research school LUCID (http://lucid.lu.se.webbhotell.ldc.lu.se/) in the Ecuadorian Amazon studying the social-ecological and economic effects of a national conservation incentive program. Since then I have continued to work with topics around forest governance, conservation and sustainable develpment in Ecuador, Colombia, Nigeria and South Africa. From 2014 to 2017 I was also part of a European FP7 project on Ecosystem Services (OPERAS) and have conducted research with project partners in Mallorca (Spain) and Scotland.
