My research is centered on indigenous knowledge, its drivers and emerging macroscopic patterns.
I am furthermore interested on systematic conservation planning of biocultural heritage and in bringing the human dimension into studies of ecosystem services that have traditionally focused on the ecological component.
Geographically, my work focuses primarily on two tropical wilderness areas that harbor a disproportionate amount of our planet’s biocultural diversity: Amazonia and New Guinea.
Collaborative fieldwork is central to my research and I have spent 30 months working with 28 indigenous groups of Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and New Guinea.
