My background in interdisciplinary social sciences (MPhil. Development Studies, Univ. Vienna; PhD Economics, Univ. Azores, Portugal, 2015), and my personal interests have directed my research towards the interactions between social and ecological systems in a variety of research fields, including marine spatial planning, marine wildlife tourism, protected areas, sustainable mobility, climate change adaptation and transformation. Within my current project ART FOR ADAPTATION, I am focusing on the question of how can art and creative practices contribute to broader, deeper and more inclusive perspectives on adaptation to climate change.
