Research and Projects


I am a researcher and practitioner with experience in multi-scale policy research and data analysis, socio-economic modelling and data visualization, information communication and capacity development. I have interdisciplinary training background in social sciences, international development and governance, institutional reform and education. My previous career was dedicated to monitoring the implementation of policies in practice, promoting data driven policy analysis and financial planning, through co-development and dialogue with decision-makers across sectors at international organizations, governments, civil societies and private foundations.

I came to iDiv with keen interest in learning and transforming knowledge generated from the integrative biodiversity research into evidence-based conservation policies and practice. Through my PhD on IPBES Scenarios here at iDiv, I hope to collaboratively foster intelligible and harmonious dialogue amongst scientists, decision makers and practitioners through co-developing conceptual models and application tools based on data driven theory and theory driven synthesis, to support biodiversity conservation, sustainable development, and societal well-being.

My Research Project

Nature-centered, multi-scale, and cross-sectoral scenarios development for biodiversity conservation policies and practice through participatory stakeholder engagement and scientific community mobilization with the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)
