My ongoing research aims to create a new framework to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of land-use planning instruments. I am interested in process of landscape changes, to 1) quantify these changes using modern remote sensing methods, 2) combine historical, political and socioeconomic data to understand the actors and drivers responsible for these changes.
