I am interested in the complexity of interconnections between humans and biodiversity, particularly from an anthropological and policy angle. I am trying to better understand synergies and trade-offs of biodiversity-related goals and targets from global to local scales, as well as the policy impact and policy communication of biodiversity science.
Currently I am working at the science-policy-society interface of biodiversity monitoring data within the project EuropaBON. Here, I help assess user and policy needs of biodiversity monitoring data and look at bottlenecks of current monitoring schemes across Europe. To do this, we engage stakeholders from academia, non-profit and for-profit sectors as well as the governments.
Overall, EuropaBON aims to design a new biodiversity monitoring framework to help coordinate and harmonize biodiversity monitoring across Europe. It also aims to design improved monitoring schemes able to integrate in-situ and remote sensing data through models, and using novel technologies, to deliver more complete and less biased biodiversity information with multiple benefits to users and society.
