My main research concerns the governance of tropical forests in Latin America. Having conducted many years of research on the Ecuadorian Socio Bosque program – a national conservation incentive program, I am now studying tropical integrated agroforestry systems and the role of new agroforestry tree crops in providing additional conservation and livelihood benefits. Furthermore, I am interested in local hunting practices, including norms and regulations around hunting in local communities in Colombia and Ecuador. I am in the secretariat of the Swedish Forest, Climate and Livelihood Research Network (FOCALI), a network of more than 50 researchers in Sweden working on topics ranging from forest mangement to climate research.
