Projects I am a part of:

  • Rurban Ateliers: Co-imagining alternative futures, socio-spatial relationships, and policy actions for just sustainability transformations; co-lead with Corelia Baibarac-Duignan (BMS Starter grant) (2024-2030)
  • COMBINED: Combatting biodiversity loss and improving climate change resilience through evidence-based, integrated, and adaptive landscape governance in the Netherlands; sub-WP lead (NWA Climate and Nature) (2024-2030)

I am currently part of two research projects funded through the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Sciences- KAKEN system.
