Interests: Economic Restructuring, Land-use Change and Modeling
Current Research: I am an economic geographer who studies land use/cover change. I am interested in how economic restructuring (e.g., neoliberalism and globalization) and political changes (e.g., land reform) lead to changes in agricultural and forested landscapes. In order to understand processes underlying land-use/cover change and associated socioecological effects, I employ a variety of techniques including statistics, spatial statistics and more recently, complex systems frameworks and agent-based modeling.
