Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)
I am a researcher in tropical forests and climate change in the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resource Management (MINA), Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU). I hold a PhD in Forest and Resource Economics and a master’s degree in international environmental studies from NMBU. My research focuses on sustainable and climate-smart management of tropical forests and the economics of tropical forests-based global climate change mitigation. Currently, I am a PI in a research project financed by the Research Council of Norway (RCN) that is developing a decision support tool that enables ex-ante assessments of policies and interventions to minimize trade-offs and maximize synergies between global environmental, national economic and local subsistence and/or livelihood objectives/demands related to tropical forests in East Africa.
