Research interests


Andrea is a Honduran environmental social scientist, currently doing research on the topic Influence of Land Tenure on Global Environmental Change. She is interested in pairing different scales – from the micro to the macro - in order to better understand broad patterns of how human behavior and decision-making affect our natural environment, and is particularly interested in studying the intersection of environmental conservation and sustainable development in the global south.
