Short biography

I am a Lecturer in Ecosystem Services at the Lancaster Environment Centre (Lancaster University, UK) and hold a PhD in inter-disciplinary environmental science from the University of East Anglia. I am interested in identifying pathways towards sustainable urbanization in tropical forest regions, particularly the Amazon. I have worked extensively with the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) as well as a range of institutions in Brazil, including the Museu Goeldi (Belém). My passion for Amazonia spans its people and places, slow boat journeys and governmental census data. Cities have fascinated me since I began to study the impacts of rural-urban migration for both people and wildlife. I am currently working on new tools to predict the impacts of Amazonian droughts on riverine food distribution and urban food insecurity.
