I am interested in understanding socio-ecological land systems and how their changes due to anthropogenic forces, impact on the socio-environmental wellbeing of rich biocultural agricultural regions. I include the role of policies and transboundary influences in my studies and thus geopolitics and the history of regions are key in my work.
I studied a Bachelor of Environmental Sciences in Spain, I did a master on Geo-information in the Netherlands and after working for a couple of year in Australia as a data analyst I ended up doing my doctoral studies at the Geography Department of Humboldt University. I spent two years in Argentina as a postdoc and returned back to Germany to accomplish another two years of postdoc at Freie Universität, where since March 2022 I hold the chair of “Modelling Human-Environment Interactions” of the Geography Institute.
I am the coordinator of the Global Land Program “Socio-Ecological Land Systems of Latin America” (website).
