Statement of Interest in the Call

My interests lie in understanding how human behaviour and decision-making affect the biodiversity and human welfare outcomes of conservation and resource management interventions in complex social-ecological systems. I am currently working carrying out research as part of an ESPA-funded Programme Framework grant on Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Social sustainability and Tipping points in East African drylands.
