Generally, I am interested in the effectiveness of environmental policies. Methodologically, I use quantitative methods to analyse public finance institutions for land use, conservation, and participatory governance mechanisms for sustainable development. During my postdoc I have been working on insurance values of soil biodiversity in the face of climate change. In the near future I plan to engage in some transdisciplinary research regarding just and green transitions.
