Presentation

I focus on how we can better manage nutrients (phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium, and carbon) in diverse socio-ecological contexts.

I focus on how we can better manage nutrients (phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium, and carbon) in diverse socio-ecological contexts.

I use quantitative (substance flow analysis, spatial mapping, statistical analyses) and qualitative (stakeholder workshops, interviews, surveys) methods when answering research questions about

  1. how resources flow across landscapes,
  2. the effect of cross-scale socio ecological context on resource flows,
  3. how socio-ecological context creates barriers and enablers to sustainable transformations, and
  4. how the management of one resource interacts with other sustainability priorities like climate change in order to help transform urban and agricultural landscapes towards sustainability.
