About

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Metapopulation Research Centre of the University of Helsinki. My research areas are ethnoecology and biocultural diversity, focusing mainly in the study of Local Environmental Knowledge of indigenous peoples. In my PhD dissertation I examined the effectiveness of Local Environmental Knowledge in the context of rapid and unprecedented social-ecological changes. I have participated in several international research projects in Bolivia, Costa Rica, Kenya and Madagascar, having conducted over 24 months of fieldwork.
