Background

My area of interest is interdisciplinary studies between ecology, statistics, socioeconomics, and geography to integrate multiple disciplines and techniques.

I am particularly intrigued by studying the interactions between ecosystem services, human well-being, and their linkages in coupled human and natural systems (CHANS) and telecoupling.

I am especially interested in continuing my research in assessing ecosystem services with a modern spatial analysis method, and in bridging together socioeconomic data with ecological data by using statistical models. I would like to suggest scientific guidelines for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
