My research interests include drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, biomass and carbon credits, and sustainable agriculture.
I am currently a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. Before coming to Edinburgh, I was working for the UN-REDD programme, which supports national governments to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.
Active research projects:
My research projects involve the use of remote sensing techniques and satellite data in a transparent and user-friendly manner. I am open to discuss and take on new projects.
