I’m an interdisciplinary conservation researcher with an interest in social-ecological systems, interdisciplinary approaches to tropical conservation, debates surrounding sustainable development and the role of different knowledges in conservation research and management.
I have expertise in tropical peatland ecology, livelihoods and conservation, having focused on peatland conservation and research in Indonesian for the past 10 years.
My interdisciplinary PhD evaluated the importance of fish(ing) to human communities in the Sebangau (Central Kalimantan, Indonesia) using Assemblage Theory as a framework. This also involved completing some of the first long-term fish and water quality surveys in the Sebangau River and Forest. You can find a more detailed outline of my thesis here.
