Brief Bio:
As an agroecologist, I collaborate with farmers, academics, and other stakeholders to better understand how to promote environmental and socio-economic sustainability. In practice, my research evaluates the viability of agricultural management systems to curtail environmental problems while maintaining profitability and valuable ecosystem services. In theory, I use ecological and evolutionary principles to design agroecological practices that improve the functionality of farmlands.
