Role: Project team member


Paz is an Environmental Biologist currently working on a Luc Hoffman Institute funded project, investigating the relative impacts of global supply-chains on biodiversity. During her PhD at the Environment and Sustainability Institute, University of Exeter, Paz assessed the effectiveness of protected areas in representing biodiversity and ecosystem services, and how spatio-ecological factors affect their performance. Subsequently, she held a research position at the Environment and Sustainability Institute in Cornwall, during which she assessed the relative contribution of old and large trees in the provision of ecosystem services within urban areas.
