Role: CCI collaborative projects, Project team member


I am a conservation biologist with a background in research on the impacts of agriculture on biodiversity, and on how food production and biodiversity conservation might be reconciled. I am now based in southern Brazil, where my focus is on the conservation of one of the regions with most endemic and threatened birds in the world – the Atlantic Rainforests.
